Rajaiah, a 48 year old gentleman, and an employee with BSNL, Warangal met with an accident on the evening of 10th June, while traveling on his two-wheeler near Kakatiya Medical College. As he suffered serious head injury, he was rushed to MGM Hospital, and later shifted to Krishna Institute of Medical Sciences in Secunderabad, where he was on life support system until the night of 11th, when the doctors declared him "Brain Dead".
Rajaiah's family, when counseled by Dr. Purna, agreed to donate his organs. MOHAN Foundation facilitated the entire process of organ retrieval. On 12th
, Rajaiah's two kidneys were retrieved and used for transplant for two patients, and his heart valves were retrieved by doctors from Innova Hospital, and will be used for two patients.
Rajaiah, survived by his wife and three children, continues to live on in four people. Although the family is grieving the irreparable loss, they find solace in the thought that Rajaiah continues to live on in four people.
