A 9-year-old child bride from Afghanistan has been returned to her family after she was witnessed being sold in November by CNN.

A U.S. based non-profit, Too Young To Wed (TYTW), helped free Parwana Malik from the marriage and returned her to her family, CNN reported Friday.

“I am really happy,” Malik said after being rescued. “The (charity) rid me from my husband and my husband is old,” CNN reported.

Malik is one of many young girls that have been sold to older Afghani men in order for their families to eat due to an ever worsening economic situation, CNN reported.

Her parents claimed that they have no choice, and that life has gotten harder since the Taliban took over in early August. They already had to sell another daughter, aged twelve, CNN reported. (RELATED: Father Reportedly Tries To Sell 4-Year-Old Daughter In Afghanistan After Taliban Takeover)
