Organs

Millions of people around the world need organs, and the demand is only growing.  Organ donation, either post-mortem or from a living donor, is not growing enough to keep up with demand, and, indeed, has never been able to meet the demand.
Below is a 2009 documentary about the illegal organ trade between impoverished eastern Europe and it's richer neighbors in western Europe and the Middle East.
Think about becoming an organ donor.  Your death can be a gift of life for over a dozen people.
