Hundreds of women and girls from across Pakistan are being sold as brides to Chinese men, a shocking new report has revealed today. So-called 'matchmaking' centres in Lahore and other cities around the country see poor families marry their daughters off to Chinese nationals in exchange for money and a visa. But work to clamp down on the growing people trafficking networks has been largely halted over fears it could harm Pakistan's lucrative ties to Beijing. Parents are told their new sons-in-law are wealthy Christian converts, but often the grooms turn out to be neither, according to several brides and their families. Once in China, the girls - most often married against their will - can find themselves isolated in remote rural regions, vulnerable to abuse, unable to communicate and reliant on a translation app even for a glass of water.

When Fatima was 20, she moved away from her village in north-western Pakistan to study medicine. Soon after moving into an all-female hall of residence, she began talking to Asad online. He was Pakistani too, but living and working in Saudi Arabia. They talked over the phone. Fatima quickly grew deeply attached and imagined that they would build a future together. Although the relationship continued for seven years, Fatima met Asad in person only once, when he visited Pakistan. They took photos together. Fatima was wearing a burqa, her head and body covered in loose fabric, but she uncovered her face for the meeting. In the area Fatima came from, it was considered immodest for women to be photographed at all — but she trusted Asad.
