Oh, the cruelty. First, Syrians are forced out of their homes by a bloody civil war. And then, well off organ transplant-needing ghouls pay evil organ brokers to exploit desperate refugees for their kidneys. From the Der Spiegel story:
Abu Hussein said that in the last few months he has driven 15 or 16 kidney donors – all of them Syrians aged between 14 and 30 – to the secret clinic masquerading as a residential building. The clinic has the most modern medical equipment and doesn’t want to limit itself to kidneys. “I’m currently looking for someone who has an eye for sale.”
Later that evening it became evident not everyone benefits from this trade. Raïd, sitting in the back of the car, was feeling unwell. His kidney had been cut out from the front, seven days ago. “I need the drugs. You said you would get me the drugs,” he said to Abu Hussein who just minutes earlier had been bragging how well his organization took care of the Syrians. But when Raïd asks for painkillers, Abu Hussein shouts at him: “Shut up. I don’t care if you die. You’re finished anyway.”
But Wesley! They need the money! Despicable. And amazing to me that so few people seem to care.
