I hope this update from People First finds you well and that the New Year has got off to a promising start for you and your family.
We have had even by our standards an exceptionally busy start to the New Year, as followers of our Facebook page ( the link is below) will already know we were honoured by a visit from the Bihar Minister of State for Labour, following increasing cooperation with Labour Department in tackling child labour and trafficking. You may also be aware Bodhgaya is the centre of the Buddhist World and organised child begging is an ever present menace. We appeal to all those who visit Bodhgaya (only 13km away from Rescue Junction) please if you want to give- donate to a recognised and reputable organisation rather than individual children. Please help spread the word.
A one day old child, a little Baby Boy was recently found abandoned in a potato field and we were able to place this boy with a caring family awaiting adoption.
He would not have survived the night if he had not been brought to us.
We are currently working with the relevant authorities trying to get trafficked children back home from as afar a field as Delhi and the Himalayas.
I just wanted to say how much we appreciate your continuing support and please look out for the next update keeping you in touch with our work.
With much appreciation,
