Lucknow: Moved by the inspiring real-life story of Lance Naik Hanumananthappa Koppad, who was rescued five 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.  (IANS)
