Crimes Against Migrants in Eritrea

Migrants in the country first pay human smugglers $2, 500 to be smuggled into Israel or Western countries. Once at the first stop in Sudan, the migrants become victims of kidnapping and ransom as they are told to pay thousands of dollars in ransom to be released. If the migrants are unable to pay the ransom, they become victims of organ trafficking as their kidneys are taken and sold on the black market.

Profit for Organ Traffickers

According to law enforcement reports from around the world, organ traffickers generally sell a kidney bought on the black market for 15 times to the recipient. Most organ traffickers purchase a kidney for $10,000 and sell it to the patient who is receiving the organ for $150,000.
