In a mass wedding, 22 couples were married and the event was paid for by the Shohada Charity Foundation.

“200,000 afghani was the cost for each bride and groom, and domestic and foreign benefactors helped us with this expense so we could hold this mass wedding,” said Shah Wali, program organizer.

Families of the couples criticized the traditions that call for expensive weddings, saying that because of these traditions their daughters and sons were engaged for many years but because of economic challenges were not able to pay the wedding expenses.

Some couples are happy about holding this kind of program.

“I am a student and cannot pay for my wedding expenses, for this reason I joined this charity foundation and I recommend families participate in this program,” said Ali Senna, a groom.

We are so happy about this program; we appreciate these mass weddings, it prevented unnecessary expenses,” said Aman Ullah, a groom.

“The price is high, everyone is jobless, for this reason the groom cannot hold the wedding,” said Sakina, mother of the bride.
