One for Humanity


 This is an amazing picture: Abdul Raheem, an Afghan soldier who lost both his hands in war, received a pair of hands from Joseph of Kerala who had suffered brain death.  Joseph’s wife and daughter are looking at the hands that once caressed them.  The transplant surgery was performed by Dr. Subramanian Iyer (blue shirt) of the Amrita Hospital, Kerala.  A Hindu doctor, a Christian organ donor, a Muslim recipient – that’s humanity!
