"The treatment was sponsored by the Pakistani government."
Noida, June 24 - A nine-year-old Pakistani boy underwent successful kidney and liver transplant surgery here after his relatives donated the body organs.

Amaar Asif was suffering from primary hyperoxaluria (excessive urinary excretion of oxalate) which leads to the formation of kidney stones.

The child was in pain for the last five years. Over time, he became extremely weak and unable to even do routine activities. As a result, his education also suffered. We are glad that the child will soon be able to go back to his daily activities said Dushyant Nadar, senior urology consultant at Fortis Hospital in Noida.

The kidney was donated by Amaar's paternal uncle while the liver donor was his maternal uncle.

The treatment was sponsored by the Pakistani government.

We are grateful to the doctors at Fortis who have given a new life to my grandson. Finally, Amaar will be able to play, go to school and lead a normal life, said Amaar's maternal grandfather Mubarak Haider.
