ORGAN DONATION HAS NO AGE BAR
Roli Prajapati, a six-year-old, who was shot dead by unidentified assailants in Noida on April 27,2022, saved about 5 lives by donating her organs and becoming the youngest donor in history of AIIMS, Delhi.
Roli Prajapati was shot dead in her head after which her parents rushed her to the hospital. Due to the severe injury, she went into a coma and was then referred to AIIMS, Delhi. Where she was declared brain dead.
AIIMS Neurosurgeon lauded the parents of the patient for donating the organs and saving five lives. The organs for the donation were her kidneys, both corneas, liver and heart valve.
