Bollywood Actor Sonu Sood join hands with Aster Volunteers to raise awareness on liver disease and help children in need of transplant
Bollywood actor and humanitarian Mr. Sonu Sood has joined hands with Aster Volunteers, the global CSR programme of Aster DM Healthcare to encourage people to be aware of the alarming rate of rising liver disease cases in India and take proactive efforts to manage their liver health. Liver failure due to unavailability of viable organ donors is one of the main causes of death from liver disease. Through the initiative 50 underprivileged children in need of liver transplants will receive the needed care at Aster Hospitals’ Multi-Organ Transplant Centre located at Aster CMI and Aster RV Hospitals in Bangalore, and Aster Medcity and Aster MIMS Hospital Calicut in Kerala, India.
Dr. Azad Moopen, Founder Chairman and Managing Director of Aster DM Healthcare said “In association with Shri Sonu Sood, who is very actively involved in philanthropic initiatives, our objective is to raise awareness and seek support from like-minded people for this noble cause. We intend to provide free and subsidized Liver transplant surgery to 50 children from the underprivileged population in this campaign.”
