A face painting competition on the topic ‘Donate life after death’ was organised by the Department of Visual Communication at Andhra Loyola College in the city on Thursday. Speaking at the inaugral, degree college correspondent Rev Fr Raju underlined the need to promote organ donation through a massive campaign to give a new lease of life to critically ill patients.
