Did you know 13 August marks Organ Donation Day worldwide? No, don’t worry, this day is not about removing your organ. It’s something more important and satisfying. Let’s find out what this day actually symbolizes.
Worldwide, thousands of people die waiting for an organ. Though some people have taken to donating their organs, in India the potential of this needs to be further developed.
