The Amar Gandhi Foundation was formed by a few like-minded nephrologists who identified the need to create awareness about early detection of kidney disease to prevent dialysis and about Organ Donation and motivate people to pledge/donate organs.

Interestingly Alia Bhatt also said, “It is important to make people aware of the process behind it. I think it is important to come and talk about the health issues and Amar Gandhi Foundation and Organ donation awareness drive. Make people aware of the prospects of their organ donation, alive or post-death”.
