Mumbai’s Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus lit up in Green: A Tribute to Organ Donors and their Families on National Organ Donation Day


 

The iconic century-old Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus Mumbai (CSTM)
railway station, was illuminated in green on 27th November 2018,
India’s National Organ Donation day, to highlight the cause of organ
donation that is conventionally represented by a green ribbon. It
symbolises hope for all those waiting for a second chance at life
through transplantation. Most importantly, it conveys our gratitude to
organ donors and their families for giving the supreme gift of all – the
gift of life.

An information booth was also set up by MOHAN Foundation inside the busy station that is a UNESCO World heritage site. Central Railway PRO Mr. Sunil Udasi & Mr. Nixon Joseph, President and COO, SBI Foundation also visited the kiosk, thereby showing their support.
