According to reports, the transplant operation cost the family several thousand yuan, and the men’s father Li Xiukai said they might not be able to afford a second operation if a suitable donor is found for Haiqing.

Both sons, from Quanzhou City in the Fujian Province of China, suffered from uremia – a condition that gradually leads to kidney failure – with a kidney transplant offering the only hope of a cure.

Tests revealed that their 51-year-old mother was a suitable kidney donor for both brothers, but could only donate one organ. Their father was ruled out because of his high blood pressure.
