A lifesaving kidney, donated with permission from the family of a 38-year-old man who died after a stroke, was donated late last week to a 14-year-old Palestinian from Bethlehem.
The successful organ transplant was performed at Hadassah University Medical Centerin Jerusalem’s Ein Kerem, where the teen is now recovering in the intensive care department.
As a medically compatible Israeli was not found by the Israel Transplant Coordination Center on the list of people waiting for a kidney, the decision was made to offer the organ to the Palestinian Authority. It could not be sent to a country abroad because there was little time to do so before the organ became unusable.
