Colombo, November 20, 2023 - In a poignant display of compassion and generosity, the grieving parents of a 23-year-old university student, who met a tragic fate after falling off a train, have decided to donate his organs, providing a lifeline to five individuals teetering between life and death due to organ failure.

The young man, undergoing treatment at the Colombo National Hospital, suffered brain damage and succumbed to his injuries. His parents, in an act of profound altruism, expressed their wish to transplant his two kidneys, heart, pancreas, and liver to patients desperately in need.

Additionally, the Sri Lanka Ophthalmic Association has taken his eyes to restore sight to two individuals who were previously blind.

Not stopping at vital organs, the parents have extended their generosity to include various body parts such as skin, blood vessels, and knee bones, which will be donated for transplantation to patients in need, all with the heartfelt consent of the grieving parents.

This selfless act of organ donation not only reflects the indomitable spirit of compassion but also brings a ray of hope to those grappling with life-threatening conditions. The 23-year-old from Wayangoda, in death, has become a beacon of generosity, illuminating the lives of multiple individuals through the gift of life.
