Iranians ‘turn to selling their organs to make ends meet as the country’s economy slumps, with a kidney selling for $10,000 and $50,000 for a liver’
- Iranian opposition group NCRI claims the organ trade is a ‘booming business’
- They say one Tehran alley has become known as ‘Kidney Street’ because of it
- Donald Trump’s renewed sanctions on Iran have crippled the country’s economy
Iranians have been forced to sell their organs for up to $50,000 with the country’s economy in freefall, an opposition group has claimed.
The National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), which is based in Paris, says the organ trade is a ‘booming business’ as the economy struggles under the weight of U.S .sanctions.
According to their report, one street in Tehran is so covered in scrawled offers of organ sales that the alley has become known as ‘Kidney Street’.
