Kabul: The situation in Afghanistan continues to remain grim. Even as ATM services resumed in the several provinces of the country on Sunday for the first time since Taliban took control in August, people do not have adequate money. The reason being there isn't much employment and source of earning for the residents of Afghanistan.
With no option left and hunger becoming a dominant problem, displaced families in war-torn Afghanistan are now selling children and organs to survive under Taliban regime.
As per reports, a child is being sold in the country between 100,000 to 150,000 Afs, while kidney is fetching the donor 150,000 to 220,000 Afs.
To prevent people from indulging in these activities, a charity committee is helping displaced families with food and cash aid. The families said they were forced to make such decisions due to poverty, the economic problems in the country as well as outbreak of COVID-19.
Every family has around two to seven children and these families.
According to Tolo News, the displaced families escaped heavy conflict between the Islamic Emirate and former government forces before the fall of the republican government in the northern provinces of Balkh, Sar-e-Pul, Faryab and Jawzjan.
The families are living in a camp in Mazar-e-Sharif, the capital of Balkh province.
The Islamic Ulema and residents of Balkh urged the international community to provide humanitarian assistance to the Afghans as the country is going through a severe humanitarian catastrophe.
