Desperate for Cash? Donate a Kidney
Yes, donating your kidney for money is illegal in America, but in Pakistan it is how most are getting paid. How desperate must you be to actually donate your own kidneys for money? For the poor Pakistanis it is their only choice to get money to pay off landlord debts, and support six children. But is it really worth it when you no longer can work like you used to and be an active human being? It really is not which is why it is illegal in America, but sad that people in Pakistan have to rely on this method to make money to survive.
These people donate their kidneys and only recieve up to two thousand dollars and sometimes just half of that, which is sad since donors in china recieve up to six thousand dollars. The surgery is no piece of cake either, it is painful and patients must have regular check ups to make sure their blood pressure and sugar level is able to keep up the other kidney, but no donor in pakistan has ever recieved follow up care. After you donate your kidney you also loose your ability to run, lift heavy things, and work as well as you could before, which slows you down from working and making more money. All this only to make up to two thousand dollars, when most patients are in dept for three thousand dollars or more. The reason they recieve less money is because doctors charge foreigners for the postoperative care the kidney needs while being shipped overseas.
This plan for making money is just sad and in a way taking advantage of the unfourtanate. The horrible part is these people are willing to destroy their bodies in this way just to makle enough cash to try and get out of debt and feed their children. The whole situation just saddens me, hopefully something will happen for these people to change their ways of making money.
