A martyr’s wife is always a martyr!

26/11 martyr Hemant Karkare’s wife, Kavita, had suffered a massive stroke on Saturday and was declared brain dead; her kidneys and liver will be transplated into three critically ill patients.

Kavita, who had strongly criticised police response to the 26/11 attacks that killed 166 people, including her husband, has given new hope to three critically ill patients:

One of her kidneys went to a 48-year-old man who had been surviving with the help of dialysis for nearly a decade. He had registered for the organ last March.

The recipient of the other kidney was a 59-year-old at Jaslok Hospital who had been waiting for a transplant for seven years.

Karkare also gave a new lease of life to a 49-year-old man who has been battling liver failure for a couple of years and had registered for the organ at Kokilaben Ambani Hospital last December.

All three surgeries were on at the time of going to press. Kavita’s eyes were donated to Haji Bachooali Eye Bank in Parel.
