Medical grad to walk 810km to gather organ donors

JOHOR BAHRU - A 26-year-old medical graduate, who recently completed his studies in India, will perform a solo walk from Bukit Kayu Hitam to Johor Baru, a stretch of 810km, within 24 days from today to raise awareness on organ donation.

Ghantan Palanisamy, who will start his housemanship after graduating from Mangalore Medical University, said that awareness on organ donation was still low among Malaysians.

"I hope to get at least 1,000 individuals to pledge their organs during my solo walk."

Ghantan welcomes volunteers to join him in his journey.
