Afghan families sell kidneys for food

• The news of Afghan families selling their daughters in return for money and food had made headlines a few months back.

• Now they are selling their kidneys. According to sources, a number of Afghan families that reside in the western province of Herat are being forced to sell their kidneys as a result of poverty and starvation.

• A resident of Herat said, “We sell our kidneys if someone buys in order to bring something for our children to eat”.

• Selling organs or any parts of the body is not lawful in the country but these families say that there is no other option for them to survive.

• It has been stated by the officials of the Islamic Emirate that they are trying to figure out a way to improve the economy of the country and prevent such activities from taking place in exchange for money and food.
