Jajpur: India is facing an acute shortage of Organ donation due to prevalence of myths & superstitions. In India 6,000 people need organ transplant each day, but only 2 to 3 percent of the demand for new organs is met.
Therefore Rotaract Club of Byasabhoomi has taken a step forward to create an awareness of organ donation to change the statistics of death causes in our motherland. We have taken a historical step i.e. attempting Guinness book of world records to form “Largest human image of an eye” with the help of school students. In this alarming situation we the youngsters are trying to spread this cause among the common citizen of India. The programme held at SaraswatiSishuVidyaMandir, Madhusudhan Nagar, Jajpur road on 10th of April 2018 at 7:00AM. Rotaract club of Byasabhoomi attempted to break the previous Guinness World book record of 2396 and today broke with 3710 number of students formed Largest human Image of an EYE . The representatives from Global Record Research Foundation confirmed the record as witness and certified the organsers instantly as Global Record holder.
