The 55-year- old brain dead woman from West Bengal has become Kerala's first organ donor from outside the state by giving a new lease of life to two Malayalis after her family decided to donate her kidneys.

She was first taken to a private hospital in Thathampilly, Alappuzha, and later shifted to V.P.S. Lakeshore Hospital. The hospital authorities said her husband came forward to donate the organs.

"We decided to donate her kidneys as it would save the lives of two people and it will also help us to keep her memory alive. Usually people donate organs if brain death happens in their hometown," Deviprasad Bose, Kajori's husband, said in a release.

"We hope that our decision to donate organs will encourage people to donate organs of the near and dear ones even if brain death happens irrespective of any part of the country," it said.

The kidneys were transplanted into Philip T A (55) of Anchal in Kollam and Makkar T M (61) of Mulavoor in Ernakulam at the same hospital. The woman's body will be taken to her native place in a flight after embalming it at Ernakulam General Hospital.
