6-year-old girl from Odisha donates organs in UAE after death

Bhubaneswar: A six-year-old girl from Odisha saved three lives in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) by donating her organs after death.

Divyashree was the only daughter of Arun Kumar and Kirti, a couple from Jeypore area in Koraput district residing in the UAE. She was suffering from pulmonary hypertension (PH), a type of blood pressure that affects arteries in the lungs and in the heart.

After she died a few days ago while undergoing treatment at a hospital, her parents decided to donate her organs.

Recently, her two kidneys have been successfully transplanted in a 7-year-old baby boy from India in the UAE and a 15-year-old minor boy in Abu Dhabi. Her liver was transplanted in a person in Saudi Arab.

With transplantation of organs in three different persons, the bereaved parents can see their daughter in them.

“We decided to donate our daughter’s organs following her death. Now we can see our daughter in three persons,” said Divyashree’s father.
