The fourth Organ Donor Dash was held at Udaipur on 13 August, commemorating the noble act on World Organ Donation Day, which falls today.  This dash, which has been the halmark of Organ Donation awareness in Udaipur over the last 6 years now, had taken an interim pause due to COVID lockdown during the last two years, but the spirit failed to subside.

Udaipur's Shameem Hussain, now a resident of the United States of America and one of the initiators of the awareness cause in Udaipur and Southern Rajasthan, sent a recorded message to the gathering. In her message she said that it was 16 years back that she and her family and friends realised the importance of Organ donation, when her younger son received a new lease of life through an organ donation from an unknown person. Since then, she and her family and her friends have been stressing upon the value of this concept and it was was 6 years back that she initiated the movement in Udaipur with the help of like minded people and institutions such as LakeCity Kidney Care Foundation, Udaipur.
