AN APPEAL TO THE CITIZENS OF JALANDHAR TO SPREAD THE MESSAGE TO MAKE THE SUPREME DONATION - DONATE EYES

Jalandhar 11 July (Jaswinder Azad)- Bowry Memorial Educational and Medical Trust and Kalashree(BMC Chowk) are collaborating to observe “Eye Donation Day” at 73, Udham Singh Nagar to promote awareness about eye donation. This day is observed every year in fond memory of Archit and Dhruv, two very special children whose eyes were donated and gave light to three persons who had lost their eyesight. Medical Secretary of the Bowry Memorial Educational and Medical Trust Dr. Chander Bowryand Mr. Dinesh Aggarwal of Kalashree explained that just as eye donation is considered a noble act in western countries where people voluntarily donate their eyes as they are socially aware, in the same way it is necessary that the awareness of eye donation and its advantages to mankind should be spread among the people of our country also. An appeal is made to the government to spread awareness among the citizens and also to include the topic in the syllabus of Class XII as to how donation of organs including eyes can save and improve the life of innumerable people in the future. The applications of driving license and other identity card applications should have the provision of eye and organ donation forms. There are presently about 20 organisations will work continuously in this regard along with the police force in order to spread the message effectively and quickly. Dr. Chander Bowry and Dr. Anup Bowry appeal to the citizens of the city to include maximum number of the population in this drive and get themselves and others registered for ‘Eye Donation’. In addition all those who require transplant of eyes and even corneas should register themselves with the “Archit and Dhruv Eye Donation and Collection Centre” at Udham Singh Nagar. As the parts become available they will be informed. So far around 4980 people have registered to donate their eyes after death. It is very essential that this message should spread to the maximum to help the needy.
