Afghan refugees sell sex to survive

Not all prostitute stories are happy ones. And not all of them are involving pimps. This form of labor is a means for survival as anything else we do in this world. While I commend Al Jazeera on this journalism, I am also troubled by how the contact with the authorities came to play. In any event, you get a glimpse in how the resource for survival become destroyed when we draw attention to what the people NEED.

“For Neno, being a sex worker is a job like any other. For Mahmoud and the park’s other homeless residents, it is a desperate attempt to survive. They spend their mornings waiting and warming themselves by fires started in steel cans, into which they put anything that will burn, often producing a choking smoke. “
