Greetings to all our friends and supporters,
I just wanted to keep you all up to date with all the news from Rescue Junction,
Seven children were found on Gaya Station who were being trafficked for work in a factory at Rajasthan.
After receiving extensive counseling, and securing follow up support from the local administration the children were all able to return to their village after being reunited with their families.
The reason this update has taken some time is that the Police having arrested the trafficker needed to organise a raid on the factory in Rajasthan.
I am pleased to inform you the raid has now taken place and many child labourers freed, some from Bihar but not from our area. They are all undergoing rehabilitation .
We now know that these children left their homes without any parental consent, having being lured away, and therefore the trafficker has now been charged with kidnapping and faces many years in Jail.
In addition, and this is rather a sad story, two young girls one only four months old were found abandoned on a local train and brought to Rescue Junction. The four month old girl is the youngest ever to be brought to the centre. Efforts are on, so far without success to locate the family
And to finish on an upbeat story, do you remember ASHA the little girl found abandoned on the station and after sometime was sent for adoption? We have news that a wealthy Indian family is going to adopt her and that she now has a wonderfull future ahead of her. Thanks as ever for your support.
