Nepal Organ Trafficking

Nepal Organ Trafficking

In this Sunday, Nov. 2, 2014 photo, Kumar Budathoki displays the surgery scars after he sold one of his kidneys to organ traffickers, in Hokshe, a village of tiny farms and mud huts that has been the center of the illegal organ trade in Nepal for more than a decade. Under crushing financial strain, Budathoki sold one of his kidneys to organ traffickers for $5,000, a sum he hoped would help set him up for a lifetime free of money problems. Instead, he got a lifetime of health problems - and only a fraction of the money promised to him by a shady broker in Hokshe, a village of tiny farms and mud huts that has been the center of the illegal organ trade in Nepal for more than a decade.
