Manipal Hospitals Collaborates to Boost Global Organ Donation Awareness

Manipal Hospitals in India has partnered with Anil Srivatsa, Founder of the Gift of Life Adventure (GOLA) Foundation, to promote global awareness for organ donation. This collaboration supports Srivatsa's year-long journey to the World Transplant Games 2025 in Dresden, Germany, which will begin in July 2024 during Organ Donation Month in Bengaluru. Srivatsa's journey aims to increase awareness and debunk myths about organ donation, culminating in Germany on August 10, 2025.

Anil Srivatsa, who has been advocating for organ donation for over a decade following a transformative incident involving his brother, has traveled across 58 countries, inspiring a global movement within Rotary clubs and delivering over 1,000 talks to more than 300,000 people. The initiative also includes the LIFT UP (Life Increasing Funded Transplants for the Underprivileged) Project, which aims to provide economically disadvantaged individuals with essential kidney transplants and post-operative care. Dr. Sudarshan Ballal, Chairman of Manipal Hospital, highlighted Srivatsa’s significant contributions to changing perceptions and policies related to organ donation.
