Indore: Giving a new lease of life to three people along with possibility of saving seven burnt patients in future, Bashani family donated organs of their 30-year-old member Arvind Bashani, on Friday. With the help of Muskan group, which has been facilitating organ donation, multiple ‘Green Corridors’ were formed in the city for 27th time in last 24 months.

Arvind, who met with a fatal road accident on Tuesday in Juni Indore, was declared brain dead on Thursday at Choithram Hospital. Organ donation facilitator Jitu Bagani said, “Arvind was in confectionary business and was survived with wife and two children of six and twelve years old.

“It is a very tough situation for the family to even accept losing Arvind, so considering donation was off their book,” Bagani said. He added that after Arvind was declared brain dead, their counselling team met his family.

“It was a difficult task to explain the family everything about organ donation. The family was aware of Green Corridor, but was broken with losing their sole bread winner. We explained them and convinced them for a day and half until they finally understood that donation would save some lives and in return, they would receive blessings,” Bagani said.

The deceased patient’s liver gave a new lease of life to a 53-year-old man from Delhi, while his one kidney was transported to Bombay Hospital for a 50-year-old woman of Ratlam and the other one was transplanted to a 47-year-old female in Choithram Hospital. Arvind’s heart couldn’t be harvested due to some technical reasons.

Preserved organs

Since eyes of Arvind were in good conditions, they have been kept preserved. Bagani shared that his eyes would go through further checks and later, donated as and when required. The largest organ of human body, skin has been donated to skin bank at Choithram Hospital. As reported, the skin is healthy and would be able to recover five to seven patients depending on the case.
