This past quarter, trafficked women and their children received physical and emotional support that has truly benefited their lives. Through counseling, pre-primary and remedial classes, medical interventions, feeding programs, fun clubs, and weekly gatherings, 383 trafficked women and 201 children residing in Mumbai’s red light districts have been helped. The women living in the red light districts yearn for hope and freedom and have expressed a desire for their children to be safe.
Soni is a 5-year-old girl whose life has been transformed thanks to donors like you. Soni lived in the red light district because her mother was sold into the sex trade. Wanting a better life for her daughter, Soni’s mother approached our staff about giving Soni a safe place to live. Soni was welcomed to Anandalay, our safe house for girls, and quickly made friends with the other girls.
Normally there is a period of adjustment but Soni never cried and got adjusted to her new environment immediately. She is very interactive, obedient, and exhibits a maturity way beyond her age. With encouragement and love from the house parents and other children, Soni is showing significant progress and we are excited that she has a bright future ahead of her.
To help more children and women in Mumbai's red light districts, you can give another gift today!
