Mother-in-law sounds elderly... coupled with kidney issues, that together sounds like it would take extensive treatment to resolve the problems, so it probably would help her, and it probably would take a month or two of consecutive treatments to really help.

Is acupuncture helpful in treating anemia?

What kind of iron is your husband taking? Has he been checked for other nutrient deficiencies? Not all iron supplements are absorbed well. He should definitely be taking one READ MORE
What kind of iron is your husband taking? Has he been checked for other nutrient deficiencies? Not all iron supplements are absorbed well. He should definitely be taking one that has iron bound to an amino acid or in a "chelate" form, for best absorption... that could be one problem. You should also consider having him eat what we consider "blood nourishing" foods, in Oriental medicine: Red beets, apricots, spinach/kale/greens (collards/mustard/turnip)-all should be blanched before eating, and the water discarded as opposed to consumed, beef (grass-fed, organic, 3-6 oz.) or eggs (with yolks, 2-3 daily, but MUST BE organic and free range or pasture raised). These foods should be consumed daily. Now, if his digestive system is weak, that could be another problem causing this. So best to consult a professional and be evaluated... but i wanted to give you something you could use today to get started. This is a complex issue without knowing specifics... but my feeling is, unless he is on 5 different pharmaceutical drugs, yes, it would help him.
