Poor Family Forced to Donate organs in Nellore City

Vastavam web: A poor family forced to donate loved one’s organs to meet medical expenses of a corporate hospital in the district. Yekula Srinivasulu of Uddipagunta in Allur mandal met with an accident when a motor bike hit him. He was admitted in a local corporate hospital in Nellore for treatment. He succumbed to injuries after some days. Hospital management asked his wife to pay Rs 1 lakh towards treatment charges and she expressed her inability to pay the amount.

Finally, the hospital management suggested her to donate organs of the husband. Due to unavoidable conditions, she had accepted for donation. Otherwise, I would have paid the amount if the financial conditioned had permitted her, Aruna said. Hospital management finally removed kidneys, eyes and heart from the body of Srinivasulu and handed over the dead body to her. Sub Collector, who responded to her pathetic story, has assured her to provide support from the State government under Chandranna Bima Scheme.
