Syrian refugee goes viral after selling his kidney to get into Europe

The organ was removed in a backstreet and dangerous operation in Lebanon and the victim went 20 days without proper medical care before his discovery last week by an anti-trafficking organisation in Serbia. Metro UK Reported.

He was offered treatment but opted to travel on with only painkillers, the Belgrade-based Atina anti-trafficking organisation said.

Aid worker Naser Amro said: ‘He sold his kidney to get money to travel. He said he had pain and problems so we intervened to get him to medical help. After talking with the individual he told us his story.’

Mr Amro said the victim was not in a life-threatening condition.
