Abdul Malik from Afghanistan sold his nine-month-old daughter as a bride-to-be in order to feed his family, LADBible reports.

The Maliks lived in an Afghan refugee camp for four consecutive years and would receive nearly $3 a day for food. After shift of power in Afghanistan, Abdul and his wife were deprived of financial assistance, and the man decided to take a desperate measure, Gazeta reports.

The man sold his nine-month-old daughter, Parvana to a 55-year-old man by the name of Korban, and now the girl is a bride-to-be. It was a $2,000-dollar deal. In addition, Abdul received land and sheep. The father isn’t content with the sale, but explained that he had no other way. He hopes the new family will treat Parvana with love and help her build a bright future.

Korban assured Abdul that Parvana will work at his house and that he will be nice and won’t beat her.
