The Multi Organ Harvesting Network has been working hard to garner public support for donation of kidneys, heart and liver from brain dead donors.
MOHAN has just released information on the selfless act of the family of Rajaiah, a 48 year old employee of BSNL in Warangal. He met with an accident on the evening of 10th June, while traveling on his two-wheeler near Kakatiya Medical College. As he suffered serious head injury, he was rushed to MGM Hospital, and later shifted to Krishna Institute of Medical Sciences in Secunderabad, where he was on life support system until the night of 11th, when the doctors declared him “Brain Dead”.
Rajaiah’s family was counseled by Dr. Purna and the members agreed to donate his organs. MOHAN Foundation facilitated the process of organ retrieval. On 12th, Rajaiah’s kidneys were retrieved and used for transplant for two patients, and his heart valves were retrieved by doctors from Innova Hospital. They will be used for two patients. Rajaiah, survived by his wife and three children, continues to live on in four people. The family finds solace in the thought that Rajaiah continues to live on in four people.
