Organ donation is the gift of an organ to a person with end stage organ disease and who needs transplant for therapeutic purpose. In central India particularly in the state of Madhya Pradesh, there was no concrete & streamlined mechanism operational, pertaining to organ donation after Brain Stem Death. A society called Indore Society for Organ Donation (ISOD) was established exclusively for the cause of popularizing and facilitating organ tissue & body donation in Indore division of Madhya Pradesh. In a span of almost 2 years ISOD has achieved many milestones. It has successfully coordinated and created inter-state Green Corridors involving different states besides multiple Green Corridors within city and outside it. With the first Organ Donation Indore become the first city of central India to be able to execute such a case, second case was first in M.P. for simultaneously creating two Green Corridors to transport organs harvested froma brain dead patient. In Case 3 it is first time in the country that two crucial organs like liver and heart were flown to two different states simultaneously & four corridors were created first time in central India. The case 4 was a first case in central India when 12 years of boy donated his organs & also a first case of central India when Green Corridor was created at night for transportation of organs. With the fifth Organ Donation, Indore has become the second city in the country barring the Southern states with the maximum number of organ donation. In The sixth case, this was first time in central India when three Green corridors were created for transferring Heart, Liver and Kidney and three different organs like Heart, Liver and Kidney donated to three different States Maharashtra (Mumbai), Delhi and Madhya Pradesh. In Case 7 Indore has become a First City in Central Zone with this seventh such successful operation during the past six months which saved more than four lives. In this case donor belonged to a tribal community this shows that now even the tribal areas of Indore Division are showing the light. With the Case 8 globally Indore got an identity as a first city in which three Green corridors were created in a week.
