Hello Ludivine, I think we met in Perpignan this time… with Anna Kari (documentography)…rings any bell??
Organs trade is quite a sensitive subject here, but exists in a big way. Are you looking at existing story or comminssing one?
cheers, sanjit

Apparently theres a neighbourhod in Chennai (aka Madras) known as ‘Kidney Street’ or the ‘Kidney District’ where many people have ‘donated’ their organs.


After surfing round the web (thought I make myself useful in my sickbed, Ludivine) the neighbourhood is referred to often, but nobody mentions actually WHERE in Madras it is…

Theres also supposed to be a similar village in Nepal where lots of people have sold kidneys.

You could try the University of Berkely, Calif. Organ Watch website. They have a photo-essay concerning organ trafficking in South Africa and Brazil, but no Indian images.


Try e-mailing them on


and see if they can come up with something…
