Sherif, who held Greek and Egyptian passports, ran a business in Zhongshan for years. He collapsed with a suspected stroke on August 17, and was eventually deemed brain dead.

Sherif's sister eventually decided to donate Sherif's organs after receiving approval from their parents.

She says Sherif was always ready to help others and had expressed willingness to donate his organs after his death. His heart, liver and two kidneys helped save four Chinese patients.

Sherif is the first foreigner to donate multiple organs in Guangdong, says Li Jinsong from the Provincial Red Cross.

Around 13,000 organ transplants are made annually around the world, but it is still insufficient to the demand of one million organs annually, said Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, WHO Director General. (China Plus)

Truly a very praiseworthy,  public-spirited gesture. The Chinese should learn from this foreigner; statistics show that organ donation in China is still not an accepted practice.  There is a cultural reason for that; the Chinese believe that the dead must go to heaven in one piece, not dismembered!  They need further education to wean them away from this unfounded belief!
