Mumbai: Samya Mansoori hails from Baruch district of Gujarat state. The 18-year-old girl was born without a right hand. In this case, the Global Hospital in Mumbai successfully transplanted her hand through organ transplant for the first time in the country.
Speaking about this, Samya said, “Since I got the information that I was going to have a hand transplant, I had dreams of doing many things with my new hand, including driving.”
Currently studying PCA, Samya wants to study MCA next. After that he wants to become a police officer and join the cyber crime investigation team. Samya adds, “I faced many difficulties without a hand. When I was a little girl, my classmates used to tease me for having no arms. Due to this I even avoided going to public places. Now, they can’t say anything. People should come forward to donate body organs,” he said.
Shamya’s mother Shenaz Mansoori says, “I will be the happiest person on earth right now. We were looking for a hand for her for the last 5 years. But doctors said that surgery can be done only after the age of 18. Samya turned 18 on January 10 and was booked for the transplant. We got a call 6 days ago about the availability of the hand,” he said.
Nilesh Sadbhai, the doctor who operated on Samya, says, “We got a donor within days of Samya’s registration. A lot of advice has been given to him over the past two years. Considering his need and belief, we decided to do the organ transplant for him,” he said.
