Aari Patel was three when he died following an accident at home. His parents, Jay and Sina, made the instant decision to donate as many of their son’s organs as possible.

Jay said: “The doctors were surprised we raised donation before being asked. But if Aari couldn’t be helped any further, Sina and I felt strongly that we wanted Aari to help others.”

We did not want another family to suffer losing their child or loved one.

Aari donated seven organs and saved the lives of two other children.

Jay said: “Whilst we lost our little boy, he donated his organs and we’re proud of that.

“Aari, I’m sure, lives on in others. Maybe that girl who has his heart has the same smile.”
