Nepal Organ Trafficking

In this Sunday, Nov. 2, 2014 photo, Kumar Budathoki, who sold one of his kidneys to organ traffickers, cries as he narrates his story in Hokse, 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.
