New Delhi, Aug 12: Cricketer Gautam Gambhir on Saturday joined a campaign to encourage people to pledge to donate organs, at the Indraprastha Apollo Hospitals here. “I am extremely humbled to be a part of this drive. Organ donation is an egalitarian and a moral act,” said Gambhir, who is also an ambassador for “Gift a Life.”
Gift A Life is an initiative launched in 2011 to create awareness about organ donation to save countless lives and is supported by the Apollo Transplant Institutes.
“Thousands die every year for want of organs and I feel that this initiative will bridge the gap by spreading awareness in the society,” said Gambhir, who has already pledged to donate all his organs. IANS
