New Delhi, Feb 1 (IANS) Cricketers Kapil Dev and Bishan Singh Bedi have pledged to donate their organs at USICON 2014, an event organised at the Airport Authority of India officers club here Friday.

The event was organised by the Delhi Urological Society to create awareness about organ donation. Their slogan “Har jan ko amar banana hai” (every life should be made immortal) conveys the message of eternal life for all.

“We have more than the required number of suitable donors but a lack of awareness and resources continues to maintain the void. The present scenario of organ donation and transplantation in India is dismal and lakhs of patients, in need of organs for survival, are left waiting and ultimately succumb to the disease,” Rajeev Sood, organising secretary and head, Urology, RML Hospital, said in a statement.
