"The work of Rescue Junction is an absolute good"

Going Home Safe
Going Home Safe

Greetings to you all  from everyone here at Rescue Junction.

Is it really 12 weeks since our last update?,

The Title of this report is a direct quote from a recent visitor, a supporter to Rescue Junction from our visitors book.

Just to remind you of all the services the Gaya Rescue Project at our centre Rescue Junction offers,

It provides local children living in slum areas near the railway education.

It provides early intervention by getting children from the streets who are lost or missing before the streets get to them

It reunites children with their families, but no child is ever returned against their will or back into an abusive situation.

It provides 24 hour care with food and has 14 full time staff including counselors and teachers with a safe night shelter.

It has specially trained female staff and secure area for girls to sleep.

It can place children in good children's homes where they exist in other areas or in homes for adoption by a loving Indian Family.

It provides a bank system for street children to keep their money, and lockers are shortly due to be installed so they can keep their few possessions safe.

It is recognized by the State Government as a shelter home for the care of children in urgent need and distress under the Juvenile Justice Act 2000, but they do not  provide funds to support the centre

And the budget for all this?   $50,000 per year.

That is why every single donation is so important in order to help us keep the centre open.

Included in this report is a picture of a boy from the Punjab , a lost child who was found drugged on a Kolkata bound train , and police brought him here as the train stopped at Gaya. He cannot remember how he got on the train, except two men who he met at the station in the Punjab befriended him and gave him food. He is very poor and lives with his grandfather with whom the picture shows being reunited.

Other news there is a Rescue Junction related video on our website home page, please watch it and ask your friends to look at it. We really need your help. There is a link below in this report.

And finally June 15th is matching funds day at Global Giving Day, please save your kind donations to that day!

With Thanks and Best Wishes to you all,

Sunita
