This news is about a girl. She is from England. She wants to be an organ donor. If she dies, her organs are donated to people who need them.

She is healthy. She suddenly dies. Her parents are in a difficult situation. They do not want to donate her organs. However, they respect her wishes. They donate her organs in the end.

The girl’s organs help eight people. Five of them are children. A part of her liver goes to a boy. He is just five years old. He lives because of the girl’s donation.

Difficult words: donor (a person who donates – gives something), suddenly (quickly and without warning), liver (an organ in the belly).
