In China, it is told that they are a very famous place for people to get their organ transplants done, but according to Falun Dafa's article in their year 2015 magazine that organs were harvested by China Hospital, and most of them came from prisoners. They believed that most of the people are Falun Dafa's members. Donor's identity very never reveal to their receiver. This was known because there are many that wanted to pay respect or thank their donor but failed to trace them, when they ask them. Those organs were harvested all against that person's will. According to a Chinese named Li, he performed 120 transplants a year while another chief surgeon perform 100 per year, this hospital may have reached up to 1000 transplants annually (source Falun Dafa's newspaper).
