Cash for organs

Among 74 surveyed from families who donated organs, about 80 percent were due to economic considerations. A total of 24 families were in arrears by more than 80,000 yuan($13,115) in medical fees, Nanfang Metropolis Daily reported.

An expert said since currently most organ donors come from low-income groups, the country should ensure compensation to their families when they donated their organs.
