SELLING MY CHILDREN TO FEED MY FAMILY
The rise of poverty is leaving more and more women across northern regions of Afghanistan turning to sex work in order to escape the grinding poverty. In households where a male is no longer alive or is unable to provide due to injury and illness, the women will then have to find ways to feed her family members from her children to her elderly parents. Undercover sex work and begging is the only options for survival. Many women have been forced to sell their daughters as young as 4 to men in order to feed themselves and their children. The choice is not easy but when you are facing continuous starvation, desperation sets in and selling your child for even $500 becomes the only option. The UN have reported that there are almost 24 million people in Afghanistan of which 60% of the population, suffer from acute hunger. As many as 8.7 million Afghans are struggling with starvation.

Just £50 can save the lives and dignity of an entire family (1 month’s supply)

Please give generously, we have a dedicated team of women on the ground directly distributing emergency aid daily to those families who are suffering from starvation, save lives and the dignity of women today.
