Nepal's Organ Trail: Coming soon on CNN

The CNN Freedom Project first exposed the horrific practice of organ trafficking in Egypt, with the documentary "Death in the Desert".

Now we travel to a tiny district in Nepal where hundreds of people have had their kidneys stolen by organ traffickers.

The problem has become so widespread, the district has developed the unfortunate reputation as "the kidney bank of Nepal."

CNN's Delhi-based correspondent Sumnima Udas leads the investigation to unravel how traffickers dupe poor villagers into giving a piece of themselves away.

"Nepal's Organ Trail" will air on CNN International at these times:

• Friday June 27; 530am ET, 1130am ET

• Saturday June 28; 430am ET, 9am ET, 330pm ET

• Sunday June 29; 530am ET; 1130pm ET

• Monday June 30; 430am ET

• Tuesday July 1; 530am ET, 1230pm ET

• Wednesday July 2; 130am ET

    It's a pitiable problem of poverty. Organ traffickers are getting benefit from the poverty and their lack of health awareness. It must be stopped in every way.

    Poverty, sickness and death. And, now, man reduced to a pound of flesh.

    Pray for the missing, the refugees and the down trodden...

    Now, I beg your indulgence. Why are unaccompanied children being trafficked to the U.S.? And what, if anything, is our Government doing to assure their safety? You speak of medical procedures being conducted in hospitals and clinics; but, I am here to remind you these autrosities take place in back street allies and in vast deserts, as well.

    How can we as citizen's of the U.S. due to curb this from happening in Central America, South America and Mexico where these acts have been committed to traveling tourists, drug cartel insubordinances and trafficking victims at alarming numbers.

    There needs to be a full investigation into the treatment of those potential victims, even within our own borders
