“Anudaan – Making Transplants Affordable” is an initiative launched by MOHAN Foundation in 2021 as a mark of its journey towards saving lives since 1997. This initiative aims to provide financial assistance to the economically underprivileged, thus enable access to life-saving transplants. Most transplants take place in private sector hospitals and the prohibitive costs makes them inaccessible to the poor. Since hardly any government hospitals perform transplants, affordable transplants remain elusive to the poor. Anudaan has been providing partial contribution to the transplant cost of individuals and has been working with hospitals to bring down the transplant costs.

It is being supported by philanthropic individuals and corporate houses such as Century Plyboards India Limited, Edelweiss Tokio Life Insurance, Ethos Watch Boutiques and BNP Paribas. MOHAN Foundation also partners with like-minded individuals and organisations such as THPF (Transplants Help the Poor Foundation), TANKER Foundation and MFJCF to name a few to share the transplant costs. We have also been raising funds on Milaap, our Crowdfunding partner. Between March 2023 – June 2023, ten transplant individuals were supported, of which many were children under the age of 10 years. Anudaan aims to touch the lives of these individuals and help them achieve their aspirations.

Anudaan acknowledges below individual contributions for joining hands with MOHAN Foundation's initiative towards making transplants possible to the less affordable.

Anudaan received a generous grant from Mr. Adi Dasika and his wife, Lakshmi enabling the support towards many more transplants for children from economically underprivileged families. Mr Dasika is the founder and president of Icon Technologies and also a board member of MOHAN USA. He has personally witnessed the problems of patients with end-stage organ failure and the benefits of organ transplantation as his mother-in-law underwent a kidney transplant. This experience inspired the couple to dedicate their retirement towards raising awareness on organ donation. They have helped organize many fundraisers to benefit organ failure patients.
