A woman sold her daughters to save her husband and sons

(ORDO NEWS) — In Afghanistan, a woman had to sell her own daughters, as well as a kidney, so that her family could survive.

After the Taliban began to rule the country, local residents are trying to come up with different ways to feed their own families. Today in Afghanistan there is a critical situation. The economic crisis has caused people to literally starve. In order to survive, some people in desperation go to the most extreme measures.

The woman, whose name is Delaram, has eight children. She, along with her husband and children, lives in a small dugout with a plastic roof in the poorest district of the city, which is located in the province of Herat.

One of the woman’s sons is paralyzed, and the other suffers from a mental disorder. In addition, medicines are needed for the spouse. There is absolutely no work in the city, and the family needs a lot of money. Because of this, Delaram was forced to sell what she had.

These are two daughters and a kidney. For girls of six and eight years old, an Afghan woman was given 100,000 afghani. At the moment, the girls still live with their relatives, but after reaching puberty they will be transferred to complete strangers.

How much they paid the woman for a kidney is unknown. In Afghanistan today, this body costs about $1,500. Before the Taliban came to power, you could sell a kidney for 3-4 thousand dollars. Despite the fact that the price has become two times lower, there are quite a lot of people who want to get rid of the organ.

The head of the delegation of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies in Afghanistan, Nechefor Mgendi, said that an incredibly difficult situation is now observed in the country. About 55% of the people of Afghanistan are in dire need of food.
