Humanitarian crisis: Desperate parents sell their babies to get enough money to feed their other children in Afghanistan after Taliban takeover



Desperate parents in Afghanistan have reportedly sold off their babies to get enough money to feed their other children amid a humanitarian crisis unfolding in the country where more than nine million people have been plunged into severe food poverty since the Taliban seized power.



Just two months after the takeover, living conditions in Afghanistan have deteriorated so rapidly with fears it could already be the world’s biggest humanitarian disaster.



New parents confirmed they have sold their babies just to get enough money to feed their other children.


Destitute citizens include a couple who sold their newborn child for £400, which will get the family ‘through a few months’.







The baby will stay with them until she’s learnt to walk and then be taken by the man who bought her.


They were told she’ll marry his child once she’s grown up, BBC News reports.Latest Post
