Imagine being strapped up to a bed against your will, captive in sheds on farmland nearby the India-Nepal border with your blood being drained from your body. You’re too weak to protest or put up a fight and all of this is for the purpose of cash.
Blood farming is a growing health and human rights issue that is very common in India. This practice is highly illegal and revolves around human beings being treated like dairy cattle on an industrial farm. These individuals though however, instead of milk, are drained of their blood cruelly. It is then sold on the black market and is used for a wide range of medical purposes.
