UP woman volunteers to donate kidney to Siachen avalanche survivor

Moved by the inspiring real-life story of Lance Naik Hanamananthappa Koppad, who was rescued six days after being trapped in an avalanche on the Siachen glacier and is currently in a critical state at the Army Hospital (R&R) in New Delhi, a woman from Uttar Pradesh has volunteered to donate a kidney to save the brave soldier.

Nidhi Pandey, a housewife from Lakhimpur Kheri, 167-km from the state capital, contacted the helpline of a local news channel and sought to know how she can contact the hospital and proceed with her wish to donate a kidney to Koppad, who is battling for his life.

Pandey lives in Padariya Tula area of Lakhimpur and her husband has, in the past, been involved in organ donation initiatives.
