A poverty-stricken Egyptian mother of three is reportedly putting her children “for sale” pleasing for assistance, a recent report has said.

The mother named Hagar Taalab from Desouk, a city in the governorate of Kafr el-Sheikh, was pictured holding a banner that states her willingness to sell her children.

The banner says each child is up for sale to provide for food, accommodation and medical treatment, for herself and her husband.

The family reportedly needs a place to stay after forcibly leaving their apartment because they can’t afford to pay rent, a report by Al Masry el-Youm said.

She reportedly told the newspaper that she had asked the city’s mayor to grant her family temporary accommodation.

The city granted them a state-owned shop to stay at, but the family was later forced to leave after it was sold to a new owner.
