More than 25 people registered their names to donate organs and cadavers during an awareness programme conducted in the residential area of Kovaipudur.

The camp, organised by the Rotary Club of Kovaipudur, saw residents flooding the venue.

As many as 400 people attended the camp to get first hand information on cadaver and organ donation.

The camp was attended by Rotarian Prathap Gokul Das, past district governor, and Kamalesh Raheja,   district governor nominee.

Many people die every day and there is a huge need of organs to save life, said Prathap. He said by donating the body or organs the dead people continue to live through others.

He encouraged people to wholeheartedly register their names for donating their organs and body.

He encouraged donation of cadavers, which he said would be of great use to medical students for carrying out their studies.

Kamalesh Raheja emphasised the need to donate blood. He said donating blood would not only save life, but purify the body of the donor.
