China’s BIGGEST Newspaper, People’s Daily honored Filipino OFW despite untimely death due to brain trauma on July 17, 2018 in the Province of Jiangsu, China as the first foreigner to donate body organs benefitting six (6) Chinese patients.

Abear Wilbert, who worked as an electronics engineer, met her wife ‘Mrs. Wang’ in Guangzhou where they had two daughters and eventually decided to settle down in Wuxi City, according to reports.

Wilbert was rushed to Taizhou City People’s Hospital with the aid of local police on July 6, when he passed out in to a deep coma while in an expressway when Mrs. Wang called for help.

Despite successful surgery by removing blood clots and lumps in the skull, Wilbert was declared ‘Brain Dead’ on the faithful day of July 17 with the presence of mourning family members. Wilbert passed away after suffering from a Cerebral Hemorrhage.

The surviving members of the family including Wilbert’s mother AGREED to his eagerness to donate his body organs, should he pass away. Six (6) Chinese patients from Taizhou City shall ‘inherit’ Wilbert’s heart, liver, kidneys and a pair of his corneas with Wang’s consent. Despite grief, Wilbert’s mother commended her son’s kindness in helping others even at his own life’s end.

Wilbert will be known as the first foreigner in China to donate body organs, saving six (6) Chinese lives.

In a Twitter post, People’s Daily, China (@PDChina) twitted: "Abear Wilbert, a #Filipinoengineer who died after suffering a cerebral hemorrhage, has become the first foreigner to donate body organs in Taizhou City, East China's Jiangsu Province, which will benefit six Chinese."

えら ラクソ: They thanked the person for his contributions in helping to save other lives. That is the most dignified proper way, for it was him not an invisible god. Dapat lang. ❤️❤️❤️and if anyone would say it was god who gave them that man, then ask yourselves the question, why did that god not save that man so he can keep working to save his own family?

Joeyv Devela: Nagpapatunay lang ito na hindi lahat ng pilipino ay.may dilaw na utak at galit sa China. Rest in peace brother your deed will forever sealed the friendship between the Philippines and China.
