Hi and welcome to HCM.
Liver transplantation should not depend on social status or financial status. even rich people dont ever get their adequate liver since it depends mostly on genetics and HLA genes of donors liver. So you should apply for transplant list and if there is adequate liver,you should get it no matter how rich or poor you are. this is case in most countries and I doubt that there is difference in just have hope, follow doctors recommendations and everything will be fine.
Wish you good health.Regards
