On 29th August 2022, Ms. Jaya Jairam was invited by Adani Electricity Mumbai Limited for felicitating one of its contract employee, Mr Yellappa Arote who happened to donate his daughter's organs in 2018, thereby saving 6 lives.
On 3rd June 2018, Mr. Yellappa Shantaram Arote who was employed in the Stores Department, was traveling by a 4 wheeler to Mumbai from his native place at Nanded along with his wife, 3 daughter's, grandmother and driver. When they reached Pune at night, very sadly, their vehicle met with a ghastly accident in which the driver, one of their daughters and the grandmother died on the spot. Their elder daughter Ms Roshni Arote had suffered serious injuries to her brain and his wife had also suffered leg fracture. They were temporarily admitted to primary healthcare center near Pune. Due to critical injuries to Ms Roshni, she was shifted to a hospital in Mumbai. Inspite of the best treatment given to Roshni, the doctors declared her brain dead and gave Mr Arote preliminary knowledge of organ donation which could be benefit others waiting on the waiting list for a life-saving organ. Mr Yellappa consulted his family members and on June 13, he gave his consent for donating his brain dead daughter's 2 eyes, 2 kidneys, heart and lungs. Immediately as per the state organ transplant norms, the organs were donated at Sion, Wadia and a Mulund hospital for organ transplant process. Having taken this difficult decision, Mr Arote feels proud that his daughter is still alive and is smiling upon them.
Ms. Jaya Jairam, on behalf of the Foundation, honored Mr Arate with a customary shawl and coconut and thereafter conveyed her deep appreciation and felicitated him with a certificate and plaque, in the presence of Adani Electricity CEO Mr Kandarp Patel and incoming CEO, Mr Kapil Sharma.
The event was attended by 50 persons including Adani's customers and employees.
