Apollo harvests 23 different organs from 5 donors

DUBAI, May 11, 2015

Apollo Hospitals, a leading healthcare service provider in Asia, has harvested 23 different organs from five donors and conducted ten transplants in a day at their flagship hospital on Greams Road, Chennai, India recently.

A case of extreme gesture of kindness displayed by five strong families who came forward to donate the organs of their loved ones, incidentally on the same evening, enabled this feat to give a fresh lease of life to 23 people, said a statement.

A function organised at the hospital to express gratitude towards the five bereaving families was attended by the founder and chairman of Apollo Hospitals Dr Reddy, vice chairperson Preetha Reddy and the entire clinical team who helped realise this meticulously conducted feat.

“Today, these well-meaning families have helped give people in end-stage organ failure, a second chance to live – and in the act will inspire more people to donate organs,” said Dr Reddy.

“It takes an extreme sense of human kindness and an elevated sense of social responsibility from families to help hospitals and doctors to give a fresh lease of life to those in need. Human life is priceless, and when an individual’s life can give life and hope to so many others in need, it is truly priceless!” he said.

The doctors and support staff worked round the clock to help realise this feat, adding yet another feather to the Apollo Group’s success in running the busiest and most successful transplant centre in the world. - TradeArabia News Service
