An award named after Mother Teresa was given this week for outstanding efforts in social justice to a U.S.-based non-profit that has unmasked forced organ harvesting in China.
Doctors Against Forced Organ Harvesting (DAFOH) was the recipient of a Mother Teresa Memorial Award for Social Justice on Nov. 3. The award was formally presented at an event in Mumbai, India.
"DAFOH is honored to be chosen to receive a prestigious Mother Teresa Memorial Award 2019, for raising awareness and sensitizing both the global medical community and the public about #ForcedOrganHarvesting and genocide in China," the organization said in a Nov. 4 tweet.
Dr. Torsten Trey, the DAFOH founder who accepted the award on behalf of the group, said the organization began in 2006 after he discovered that Chinese prisoners were being forced to undergo organ harvesting.
