India-Pak Healthy Relation gets new direction with Inter-country Swap Liver Transplant
In yet another case of Organ Transplants in India, a Pakistani businessman underwent a swap Liver transplant in Apollo Hospital Delhi
Varinder Kunmar, a 59 year old person from India faced a severe liver failure and thus in the beginning of this year came to the renowned Apollo Hospital Delhi. Kumar didn’t find any matched donor in his family and thus finally underwent a swap transplant with Dileep Sachdeva, a Pakistani businessman from Sindh who was also with the same predicament.
It can be called a miracle of God that Sachdeva’s wife Amrita’s blood group matched with that of Kumar while Sunny, Kumar’s son has a similar blood group as of Sachdeva. Thus in a mutual understand, Amrita gave part of her liver to Kumar and Sunny swapped his liver parts with Sachdeva. After a successful swap liver transplant, both the patients got back their lives and searched out new meaning of it.
Expressing his overwhelming feelings, Kumar said, “It's destiny that we met. Amrita calls me every day and invited me to Pakistan. I'll go; they're like family to me now.” On the other hand, Mr. Sachdeva puts his views philosophically, “We are all one, at the end of the day”.
