Narmada Kidney Foundation (NKF) was the first organization in the country to initiate this activity. The first program was on November 30, 1997, when shri Sunil Dutt, renowned actor and social activist was the chief guest. Since then, every year this program which we call “Organ Donors’ Day” (ODD) is being celebrated on 30th November.
Several celebrities like Dr. V.N. Acharya (mother of neprology), Mrs. Shobha De, Mr. Julio Rebeiro, Mr. Sonu Nigam, Mr. Kumar Ketkar, Ms. Pallavi Joshi, Mr. Shammi Kapoor, Ms. Shabana Azmi, Mr. Baba Siddiqui, Mr. Kunal Kapoor, Mr. Madhur Bhandarkar, Ms. Poonam Dhillon, Mr. Suresh Prabhu, Ms. Medha Patkar, Mr. Shankar Mahadevan, Mr. Jaykumar Rawal etc. have graced NKF ODD function.
The felicitation of the living donors and family members of deceased donors is done by awarding a certificate and presenting a trophy in the presence of their recipient, family members, friends, guests, and the doctors who made transplant possible. There is also an entertainment program.
