Catholic Bishop donates Kidney & creates history!
As a typical example of Charity from the self, Catholic Bishop, Jacob Muricken became the first prelate to donate his Kidney to a struggling youth. “Jesus spoke of giving life and I have experienced it,” added the 53-year old auxiliary Bishop Jacob Muricken of Palai diocese in the southern Indian state of Kerala, whose kidney was transplanted on E.Sooraj, an employee of an Ayurvedic hospital who has been struggling for life with three dialysis a week since both his kidneys were found dysfunctional from late 2014. The team at VPS Lakeshore feels elated to be a part of this epic event
