Star cricketer Gautam Gambhir pledges to donate his organs


Organ donation in India received a major boost after cricketer Gautam Gambhir announced that he would be donating his organs after his death. Gambhir pledged his organs after launching the “Gift a Life” initiative, a website that encourages people to donate their organs to needy people, which is backed by Apollo Transplant Institutes.

Urging the media to generate awareness among people regarding organ donations, Gambhir said, “Thousands die every year for want of organs and I feel that through this initiative we can do society good as it helps us bridge the gap between the demand for these organs and their availability.” Gambhir also urged everyone to make a firm decision to donate their organs.
