Special Mission: Algerian kidneys for sale
Saturday, 23 April 2016
Algeria was included on the list of the largest human organs trading markets between Arab countries, according to reports by international organizations, in the absence of official statistics and figures on supply and demand for human organs levels. The communication between the customer and the merchant starts on the net, where Algerians put advertisements offering their organs like kidneys, parts of the liver and eye corneas for sale. The program’s team has investigated this subject and met with people, including a woman who is selling her kidney for about 50 thousand dollars in order to buy a house.
