Mr. Ray Coe, 53, is a Christian and a special educational need co-ordinator who stepped in to save Alya Ahmed Ali - seriously ill student, 13, after learning she was desperate for a Kidney donor.
Meanwhile, Ayla is from Stratford, east London and a Muslim suffered from renal failure. She also has hydrocephalus - water on the brain - which has resulted in her having severe learning difficulties.
Alya’s mother told Mr Coe during the summer term last year that her daughter would be absent from school as she had to have kidney dialysis. Mr Coe was very concerned and asked Alya’s mother what he could do to help her daughter.
According to DM report, Mr Coe said 'There is a verse in the bible that says something like: "Maybe you were born for such a time as this". It just clicked and I knew then that it was right.
Thank be to God Almighty, the pair went on to have blood tests and against all the odds, they showed that Ray was a match - despite not being related. The successful transplant went ahead at London’s Great Ormond Street Hospital in February. Both Alya and Mr Coe are now recovering well from the operation and are expected to return to school after the Easter break.
Just like School headteacher Wendy Bower said: 'Mr Coe has gone above and beyond the call of duty with this selfless and noble act’.
The bible says love your neighbour as you love yourself. Religious does not matter, love covers multitude of sin.
