MOHAN Foundation celebrated its 25 years of saving lives through a unique “Ramp Walk for Life” wherein luminaries from various walks of life walked the ramp in Telangana Weaves and showcased their support for the cause on December 23, 2022. The event was held in partnership with Abhihaara Foundation which promotes Telangana Weaves.
Actress Revathy, who was the first celebrity to pledge for a donor card in 1997 when MOHAN Foundation was established, was the Guest of Honour. Ms Revathy flashed her “Donor Card” and sincerely appealed to the public to pledge for organ donation. She also spoke about her recent ventures Aye Zindagi and Salam Venky, which dealt with organ donation. She spoke highly of the challenging work performed by the transplant coordinators - approaching families for organ donation during their darkest hour of grief.
Doctors, celebrities, transplant recipients and donor families walked the ramp wearing Telangana weaves to create awareness on organ donation. The transplant recipients (organ and cornea) also narrated their hardships and how transplant changed their life.
