'Take my kidney!' competition!

By S.H.Moulana - Riyadh

What we normally see in normal life are disputes and competitions among brothers to inherit parental properties, but we saw in the coastal town of Dhahran, in Saudi Arabia, entirely something different, this was about a fierce competition for donating kidney to their youngest brother.

Coincidentally all the four brothers were found fit to donate kidney to the youngest sibling Abdullah, who had suffered a renal failure and was ill for over a year.

None of the brothers were prepared to give in from their willing offer.

When it became impossible to decide who will be the donor as all were equally determined and not giving in for the noble and loving act, the eldest brother, Hussein, suggested that they hold a draw to choose the donor.

All the four left with no option but to agree to compromise on a draw.

Younger brother Mohammed who works as a journalist was all smiles when the draw came in his favor.

The kidney transplant operation was successfully done by doctors Rida and Amira at one of the well-known hospitals last week. The surgery was hundred percent successful and the two brothers will be discharged anytime.

The donor brother was quoted as saying ‘Our family’s happiness will be complete when we see Abdullah enjoying good health’.

I am also aware of another devoted brother in Muhannad, who postponed his own wedding to donate his kidney to his beloved sister, in Riyadh.

These men with large hearts really deserve praise for their magnanimous acts.
