Twist of fate: Saudi sister dies after saving brother’s life
Reem died in her sleep just days after she secured a kidney transplant for her dying brother in Saudi Arabia
A 22-year-old died in her sleep just days after she secured a kidney transplant for her dying brother in Saudi Arabia.
A Saudi soldier donated a kidney to the 12-year-old boy named as Faisal, after his sister, Reem campaigned through social media for a donor to come forward.
Reem left a message for the soldier saying: “Thank God, you soothed my heart by helping my brother.”
Reem also tweeted: “Who shared parts of his body with my brother, is the reason for his recovery after God.”
In another tweet, she wrote: “God bestow health on you, and you recover well my beloved one”
But she dies days later in her sleep.
The father of the two told AlArabiya.net back in September that when he found out about the soldier donating the kidney to Faisal: “We took the news with fear, happiness, and sadness. A feeling that cannot be explained with words. But we were always believers in God’s will.”
