    Deedar Ali says:

    Very dangerous report for heart patients and awareness for humans that are in such desperate condition

    Bab Blo says:

    Situation caused by US s tealing their foreign reserves last year because they dared to k ick US out of their country.

    Daryl Solis says:

    This country will never escape he harsh rule of the Taliban

    Jimmy says:

    Buddy we froze the country’s money and basically banned them from international trade if we hadn’t done this it wouldn’t be in the position it is but that’s what we do to governments we don’t like simple

    Deb Eichmann says:

    By their own choice.

    MisterTMH says:

    @Deb Eichmann Wrong. Get rid of the Pakistani secret service, The ISI ‘s support for the Taliban and the Taliban would become less of an issue.

    Quran& hadith says:

    This is Heart breaking inocente kids are suffering from all this

    Bab Blo says:

    Situation caused by US st ealing their foreign reserves last year because they dared to k ick US out of their country.

    Mohammed Allah says:

    Those kids are not innocent.

    Quran& hadith says:

    @Mohammed Allah wow ok 👌 how you can blame kids for the rest of the world fault

    Kristina B says:

    @Mohammed Allah Children are born as innocents. It is their natural state, but the world and corruption of man/society takes it away prematurely. It is a sin to steal the innocence that God has given them. Societies should protect their children, their elders, and the mentally ill, and the sick.

    Bayarea Grl4ever says:

    I would never sell my child. To be used as a sex slave to some disgusting man or God knows what. That’s no life for a child, that’s torture and hell on earth. That money will come and go and they will still have nothing. Makes me sick. They should stop having children.

    Killerqueen says:

    @I’m better than you Weirdo

    Ant Brown says:

    @a w i think it is part of the Islam religion that Allah will judge? Is this correct or not? It is certainly part of the Judaism God and the Christian God that God will judge.

    Kristina B says:

    @S A No. Some parents would say there is no price high enough and would give their own life if necessary. The primary duty of a parent is to protect their child.

    a w says:

    @Bonnie dont like to accept the truth about Islam?

    a w says:

    @Ant Brown who cares of their fake God will judge, its still a violent religion

    Dave McG says:

    It’s horrible people are living like this…

    Joseph Seed says:

    @Azzam Alqudsi no this is not war the war ended in late 2021 when America and our allies left after 20 years this is because the Taliban are religious fanatical zealots who still want to live in the 13th century no American Aid will be coming we try for 20 years and you spat at the hand that fed you now feed yourselves m***********

    Jo Sm says:

    @Azzam Alqudsi no, it’s religion. A backwards religion that looks to the ramblings of a 7th century slave trading warlord as perfection, but then blames the West for all their problems and not the fact the are determined to emulated their slave trading r*pist prophet.

    Giovanni Itchee says:

    They chose to live like this, they have done so for 1,000s of years, they don’t want or need to be Westernised, the West tried that for decades, they don’t want it.

    Dave McG says:

    @Azzam Alqudsi winds me up when people always bring religion into it..

    Dave McG says:

    @Giovanni Itchee I believe you speak on behalf of so little

    Pub Comrad says:

    Afghans were at war and poor, but they never thought of moving to countries like China 🇨🇳, why?

    Hannah Dyson says:

    Good reason. China will ethier kill them or work them to death ?

    Cal L says:

    The Afghan government is to blame. When US military was present, they could have developed the nation in times of peace. Grow the economy and improve defense to repel Taliban.

    Once the US left, the government collapse. They were never prepared to manage a nation.

    Too many crisis occurring in the world now. Unfortunately, nobody is capable to help them now.

    Cal L says:

    @Blanka You’re blind to facts. Whether the intention was noble or not, the presence of US military keep Taliban attacks at bay – for _20_ years. The Afghans had two decades of peace.

    Ang R says:

    https://youtu.be/XDDihyQLH5o
    Look at all the natural resources in Afghanistan. Metals and minerals. Billions maybe trillions of $ worth. That is why thee wasn’t poverty there before invasions by Russians then the USA etc ensured the Taliban took over to keep up the poppy growth.

    Ant Brown says:

    Sounds accurate assessment

    Blanka says:

    @Cal L Sure, the same way they still occupy Syria, steal their oil and sanction every company that try to do business in Syria to reconstruct. With help like that who needs an enemy.

    castlev1986 says:

    sorry for them people but we have poor people in usa living on the streets sorry we help them first we tried helping you all right & you wanted the other people ruling your lands so have a nice day

    Misty Behaviour says:

    I don’t know why Taliban government keep saying is their assets when it was the world that gave it to them. I feel for the people so badly, however the Taliban need to know that you cannot run the country on outdated and religious text, the world has evolved why can’t they, also they must know about the Iran protest, people do not want a strict religious government

    KKa Charles says:

    You must br quiet stupid or unaware like a child to think this is because of taliban. It has nothing to do with religion

    This is all because of the western invasions starting from the USSR to the USA

    If anything taliban freed the people to be an independant country. Go stick your colonist mentality up your a**

    Alex Kumm says:

    Done feeling bad for these people, they didn’t want to fight for their own democracy. They get what they deserve 😂😂😂

    eri Grimo says:

    So sad no one should go hungry in this world 🌍

    Bab Blo says:

    US d estroyed their country

    Captain Meowzers says:

    The dudes look totally amazed watching the reporter doing her job like they didn’t actually know it was possible.

    Vice.Nor.Virtue says:

    “take a picture, it will last longer…oh wait you don’t have a phone. nvrmind..”

    Public Public says:

    @Vice.Nor.Virtue no phone but have a camera so wtf are you on about? troll off.

    مغامرات صوفي says:

    here you can see some new staff ,not BBC hypocrisy https://www.youtube.com/@ibralafg
    I hope my youtube account will remain after such a comment :)) keep the Democracy up :))

    S A says:

    Because they are off their faces on drugs.

    Kevin Chen says:

    Just FYI, Afghan parents were doing this regularly in 2010-2013, while I was there. This was when Western economic aid was pouring in by the hundreds of billions and the economy was good. All the kids sold were always girls. When my wife and i had trouble conceiving our first child in 2015, an acquaintance offered to connect me with hospital administrators in Kabul, who worked regularly with parents to sell their babies. We could have bought a little girl for 200 USD… We were repelled by this and did not take up this offer. But this practice of Afghan patents selling kids is not only a “when-times-are-tough” thing. It’s part of their culture and society, even when times are good…

    Jo Sm says:

    @Pepe Le Pew the irony of you complaining about my comprehension of your non sequitur reply! 😂😂😂

    Pepe Le Pew says:

    @Jo Sm and your whataboutism totally explains it all. get a proper education.

    Kristina B says:

    @Qotho Ndlovu “Moral values are a privilege.” I disagree. There are many, many examples in history of people or groups of people who lived in deep poverty or dire situations and still clung to their values. Selling ones child is a desperate act, I agree, and one that deserves some compassion. However, in some other societies, they would not likely do this. Many parents would rather die for their child than sell them. Girls are viewed as having less value in Afghanistan (generally) and are more easily commodified during challenging times. .

    Qotho Ndlovu says:

    @Kristina B if the situation doesn’t improve this may not be the last moral value they do away with. It’s a all a matter of degrees of dire. At this level daughters get sold, as there’s an existing market for them anyway. What happens next? Perhaps the final stage is mass cannibalism, as shown by history. Once again, the sacrifice of moral values for survival. If you have an honest conversation with yourself, you’ll come to the conclusion that modern day moral values are a privilege. What would you not do to draw another breath? Survival instincts run deep.

    tony pmathew says:

    I can’t see this….I dont know what I can do for them….they are humans just like me and my family….

    Valeria Haze says:

    That what happens when you don’t want to defend your country against taliban and waiting for aid not trying to provide for your family by yourself

    Caroline McNulty says:

    The Afghani men didn’t resist the Taliban when they knew their women and daughters’ lives would be miserable. Instead they want western handouts. I pity the little girls but I don’t have any respect for the men – not the men who sell them, nor the men who buy them. And I despise the Taliban who obviously eat well while others starve.

    Jamie Dooney says:

    There is no excuse in anyway shape of form asking for sympathy for having to sell and drug there children I would die for my daughter not sell her as an object they have no respect anyway shape or form they will just have another daughter sell her absolutely disgusting

    Earth Watcher -_- says:

    Hunger remains one of humanity’s greatest challenges. The target is to achieve zero world hunger by 2030. That’s the United Nations’ goal. But the world is a long way from achieving that. According to the UN Food and Agriculture Organization, the number of people without enough to eat is rising — in 2020, more than 750 million people went hungry – maybe as many as 811 million. That’s around one tenth of the global population. The worst hit regions are Asia, with 418 million, and Africa with 282 million. Researchers believe the situation in Africa has dramatically worsened.

    MagirusDeutz Jupiter says:

    The human race at its finest again. I am so deeply sad how developments like this occur.

    Synathidy says:

    Beyond heartbreaking.
