Service to human is supreme task which in all forms is highly appreciated. The selfless effort to serve the society is only possible with dedication. The task to arrange for organ donation needs lots of patience and humbleness.

It was evolved with the two fold objective of increasing awareness about organ donation in India, and broadening the mindset of people towards the gift of life.

With the ever increasing numbers of patients suffering from blindness, our drive is two fold – firstly, to make people aware & educate them about the disease and its prevention and secondly, to provide them with a new lease of life through organ donation.
We also encourage the people to prepare themselves as organ donors.

Shine india foundation acts as a link between the donor and the recipient. Shine india foundation receive calls from the ICUs, Hospitals, Trauma Centers, Volunteers about a patient declared as brain dead. The volunteers of Shine india foundation go and meet the patient’s family members / relatives and try and convince them for Organ Donation.
If the family members / relatives say yes, then organ donation is done.

Eye banks concentrate on retrieving tissues used in eye surgery that restores or improves sight. Most eye banks focus on retrieving corneas. The cornea is the clear front window of the eye, about the size and shape of a coin. It transmits light to the interior of the eye allowing us to see clearly. Corneal injury, disease or hereditary conditions can cause clouding, distortion and scarring that may result in blindness. But corneal blindness is one of the few forms of blindness that can be cured. In a delicate procedure, the surgeon removes the damaged cornea and replaces it with a cornea donated by a recently deceased person. Cornea transplants are very successful, with a success rate of more than 90% if the cornea is placed on the eye in such a manner that blood vessels do not come into contact with it. Without blood vessels, the body cannot send immune cells to attack the cornea.
