Two women donate their kidneys to save each other’s husbands’ life

 At these hard times, people are knowing the importance of each other in their surroundings. Sushma Uniyal (48) and Sultana Khatoon (46) came together to save each other's husband's life.

They set an example that they both agreed to donate their kidneys for each other's husbands. The transplant has been successful last week and Ashraf Ali (51) and Vikas Uniyal (50) are doing fine.

Their husbands are on dialysis and they required kidney donation. After much inquiry and search donors were found.

Sushma Uniyal, the wife of Vikas Uniyal, said, "I can't express my regards in words. I  am very thankful far away I am very thankful to Sultana Khatoon and her family. We decided to help each other and here we are, two happy families."

Sultana Khatoon’s husband received a kidney from Sushma Uniyal she said that "Sushma Ji has become my soul sister and the bond of humanity they shown is stronger than any relation in this world. I want to thank Sushma Ji and her family for saving the life of my husband."

Sushma Ji further said that her husband's kidneys were negatively affected to an extent that he was on hemodialysis for more than two years now.

"Doctors recommended kidney transplant but we were not able to find a match out of the family members and relatives including me. Then doctors from the Himalayan hospital told us about Ashraf Ali who also needed a transplant. We went through the paperwork and decided to help each other," says Sushma.

A team of doctors has been monitoring both men who are now stable and doing fine in a hospital.

Senior urologist Dr. Kim J Momin, whose team performed the transplant, said: "Both the transplants have been successful and the teams of the doctors are monitoring their health."

Sultana too was finally relieved: It cost a lot in terms of money and mental health. But at last, they both helped each other and they all are fine now 

Anno Nautiyal, a Dehradun-based activist said that "This is an incredible example of our culture, values and the code we have lived by since times immemorial. Helping each other in a time of need. Saving the life of their fellow citizen is the remarkable contribution one can make. We all should take a suggestion from both these great women."
