When we asked the reason from the doctors, they told us that there is a scarcity of organ donors. We thought to donate organs of our child since there was no hope for her to come back to life, we had already lost our child and we did not want others to suffer the same fate. Hence we voluntarily asked the doctors to retrieve Dhanishtha’s organs and donate them to the needy ones. While she is not with us but we can see her living in others carrying her organs.”

5-month-old infant has been saved

Baby Dhanishtha heart, liver, both kidneys, and both corneas, ni five patients ki transplant chesaru. Ee five patients lone oka 5 – month old infant kuda save ayyindi Baby Dhanishtha organ donation kaaranamga

“This noble act of the family is really praiseworthy and should motivate others. At 0.26 per million, India has among the lowest rate of organ donation. On an average 5 lakh Indians die every year due to lack of organs,” said Dr D.S. Rana, Chairman, Gangaram Hospital.

Baby Dhanishta’s father Ashish Kumar also urged people for cadaver donation.

“There are myths attached to it like the person whose organs are retrieved will be born without them in the next life. People should not believe in such things. If there is an opportunity to save the lives of others, one should do that.”
