Naqvi Injury Law is the recipient of Nevada Donor Network’s 2018 Community Champion Award for its outstanding effort to raise organ, eye and tissue donation awareness in Southern Nevada. The firm was instrumental in promoting donations this year through public service announcements and a hands-on campaign to spread awareness at a University of Nevada, Las Vegas, basketball game in February. The efforts of Naqvi Injury Law along with Nevada Highway Patrol and Lotus Broadcasting resulted in more than 731 people registering as heroic organ, eye and tissue donors, a record high for a single event in Nevada.
“It is with great pride Nevada Donor Network recognizes our partners at Nevada Department of Public Safety/Nevada Highway Patrol, Lotus Broadcasting, and Naqvi Injury Law for their collaborative efforts earlier this year in promoting organ, eye and tissue donation,” said Joe Ferreira, Nevada Donor Network President & CEO.
”In one evening, they successfully set a new record for registering more heroic organ, eye and tissue donors than any other single event in our history. We are grateful beyond measure to the donation champions who take it upon themselves to spread the message and emphasize the importance of registering as a hero. On behalf of our heroic donors, their courageous families, and those who patiently wait for a lifesaving gift, we thank and congratulate this year’s award winners!”
Farhan Naqvi, managing partner at Naqvi Injury Law, led the firm’s efforts on behalf of the effort to encourage new donors to register with the program. “Participating in this campaign was extremely rewarding, and it’s fulfilling to know that our efforts aided in maximizing the gift of life and health for so many that need organ and tissue donation,” he said.
One donor hero has the power to save up to eight lives through organ donation and heal 75 or more through tissue and cornea donation, according to the Nevada Donor Network, a federally designated 501(c)3 not-for-profit organ procurement organization (OPO) serving 15 counties in the state of Nevada.
