Eight-year-old boy’s family donates his organs after Christmas Day death

A hard decision for the family that was still mourning the death of the child.

Sadness did not prevent them from making this decision of solidarity, for which they donated the kidneys and corneas of the child.

The eight-year-old boy died last December 25, at the 66th Social Security Hospital. The organ donation procedure was carried out by health professionals at the center located between Ramón Rayón and Durango, this being the fourth organ transplant procedure performed here so far this year, according to El Debate.

Spain continues to lead the world in organ donors

Health authorities insist on the importance of organ and tissue donation. Despite the coronavirus pandemic, which resulted in a 10% drop, Spain continues to lead the world ranking of organ donors.

Last year, 1,777 deceased donors and 270 living donors were registered in our country, which allowed 4,427 transplants to be performed. In total, 2,702 kidney transplants, 1,034 liver transplants, 278 heart transplants, 336 lung transplants, 73 pancreas transplants and 4 intestinal transplants were performed. A slight decrease in the 2020 figures, with respect to the previous year, which this year has already begun to rebound, with an increase of 6%.
