The Doctor couple who lost their daughter last year in an accident, and could not donate her organs because of ill defined rules, decided to celebrate her first birthday in an inspiring way – by funding operation of two kids who need Heart surgery.
They would have celebrated August21 as the first birthday of their daughter Meera, who in Dec last year stayed on Ventilator for 3days, meanwhile the Doctor parents were trying to get her organs donated to other kids in need. But before all the processes and unclear rules can be taken care of, she breathed her last. The doctor couple then even wrote a letter to the Prime Minister with a request that the organ donation rules must be made more clear and simple, so that in urgent circumstances one can keep their loved ones alive in someone else and someone will get a new life because of them.
“Meera’s organs would have given new lives to children, but that was neither in our destiny nor in our hands. Even as we recovered from her loss, we didn’t want to lose hope. That’s how we decided to help children who wait endlessly to undergo corrective surgeries,” said the father.
Dr Umesh, who is a gynaecologist, and his pathologist wife Ashwini started looking for children in need of financial help for an ailment.
They zeroed on a four year old girl and a 5year old boy, who have got hole in their heart and has been waiting for the government assistance since a year. The girl is the third girl child in the family and that was another reason, her parents didn’t make any effort for her. The parents are daily wage workers.
The doctor couple decided to fund their surgeries which went successfully.
Post-surgery the girl’s father has expressed joy on seeing his daughter doing well.
“Nothing can fill the vacuum created by Meera’s death, but the smiles on the faces of these children can help us cope with the pain” said the doctor.
They intend to take their effort forward to see, in what other ways they can bring a change and help others, while still waiting to see a change in the organ donation laws in the country.
