Bollywood star Salman Khan’s charitable organisation Being Human has teamed up with Marrow Donor Registry India (MDRI) to create a world-class registry of marrow donors in India. However, for the registry to be functional, more than one lakh donors need to be registered. People from the age group of 18-50 years are eligible for donor recruitment.
K.J. Somaiya Institute of Engineering and IT, Sion, conducted a marrow donation drive on their college premises along with ‘Marrowthon’ - a 6 km run showing support for the cause.
“We are glad K.J. Somaiya has come forward. We hope more colleges and their students come forth and make their contribution towards saving many more lives,” said a MDRI spokesperson.
