How far would you go to save the life of your former teacher?
A 25-year-old medical graduate from Malaysia has earned praise online after he decided to donate 67 per cent of his liver to save his former teacher, Liang Feng Pin’s life.
The selfless Malaysian identified as Chen Ze Rong did not hesitate to donate his organ to his primary school teacher when he learned her dire medical condition.
Online sources said Liang was Chen’s science teacher in year five at Kong Min Chinese primary school in Kuantan. Liang’s daughter,
Zheng Zi Jing, was also Chen’s classmate in the school.
Both teacher and student are now recovering after the transplant was successfully held in Singapore. What Chen did to his former teacher is one heroic act that deserve emulation and praise from all of us!
