Edelweiss Tokio Life unveils educational programme on organ donation

Aims to create organ donation ambassadors across the country through a structured programme

Continuing its social initiative #NoMoreWaiting for a second year, Edelweiss Tokio Life Insurance unveiled a unique educational programme on organ donation and a plan to build corpus for underprivileged organ recipients. The insurer will continue its partnership with MOHAN Foundation, an NGO actively working for the cause.


Once again, the insurer has roped in Rahul Bose, Actor and social activist, as the face of the initiative and aims to harness his social influence in spreading awareness for this cause.

Commenting on the organ donation initiative, Sumit Rai, MD and CEO, Edelweiss Tokio Life Insurance said, “We deeply resonate with the cause of organ donation because it coincides with our organisation’s vision of protecting people’s dreams and aspirations. This year, we have widened our scope by investing in educating people and aim to gradually make organ donation a subject that is extensively discussed within our social circles. We hope to make a tangible and real-world impact by extending educative as well as economic support.”

The 2nd edition of #NoMoreWaiting will extend for a year and aims to create organ donation ambassadors across the country through a structured programme. As a part of this programme, the insurer, together with MOHAN Foundation, will offer a 4-hour online certification course, followed by a 2-hour interactive session with experts, organ donor families and recipients.

With support from Edelweiss Tokio Life and MOHAN Foundation, people who have completed this course can conduct awareness sessions, social media campaigns and encourage others to pledge for organ donation.

Another important leg of this initiative will be its fund-raising campaign. The insurer will conduct fund-raising events throughout the year by partnering with well-known Indian musicians and help build a corpus for MOHAN Foundation. This corpus will support underprivileged organ recipients by facilitating expensive transplant surgeries.

Dr Sunil Shroff, Managing Trustee, MOHAN Foundation said, “The ongoing pandemic has set back the cause of organ donation as containing COVID-19 has been a priority for all those involved in public welfare, be it hospitals or the government. This phenomenon is not limited to India but has happened across the world. So, such awareness initiatives are much more important in the current scenario to ensure that we keep moving forward in this journey irrespective of the external situation and reflect back and consolidate our achievements of the recent past to build a stronger program for the future.”
