Around 5 lakh people in India die every year while waiting for organ transplants. Whereas the countries like USA, UK, Belgium and Spain have 10-40 donors per million of the population, India stays far behind in the list with only 0.08 donors per million of the population.
World Organ Donation Day is celebrated on 13th August each year to spread awareness about the noble cause as well as to encourage more and more people to join the mission.
