(Scroll down for video) She is dubbed a hero by many. One Israeli Arab woman, became a role model in compassion and love for another human being.
The woman, Yusra Ashur, was left broken hearted, when two of her sons were tragically killed in a car accident. Ashur, who lives in the port city of Jaffa, made a decision to donate their organs to a person in need.
According to reports, the organs were given to a Jewish person, whose name has not been released.
Her drive behind donating organs, came after she witnessed her nephew struggling when he needed a kidney transplant. She saw the pain her nephew was going through until he finally received a kidney from a Good Samaritan, which saved his life.
“If our organs can save lives, it’s definitely worthwhile to donate them to others in need after we die,” Ashur said.
“When you make the decision to donate organs you don’t consider who it will it go to, we will give it to whoever needs it, this is humane,” she added.
Now, she chose to be that Good Samaritan and hero to others by saving their lives. May her sons rest in peace and may their memory live on.
