Welcome Volunteers

Volunteers at Rescue Junction
Volunteers at Rescue Junction

Hi Everyone!!

I hope this report finds you and your family all well.

Nowadays Rescue Junction is extremely busy and with our new links with the national agency childline we are getting referrals from all over India, trafficked lost missing and children rescued from child labour. We have reunited 10 children from one place alone, Manali in the Himalayas and working with the police we have smashed this particular child trafficking ring.

It was our pleasure to welcome volunteers , mostly from the University of Lincoln in the UK who helped out at Rescue Junction for a couple of weeks in August. This was as part of our village experience programme which you can find out about on our website. 

Another very important piece of news, you can see a photo on out FB page is that our Child Protection and Legal Services officer. Mr Manoj Kumar has just been appointed chairperson of the newly constituted Child Welfare Committee here in Gaya. This places Rescue Junction right at the heart of working with others in helping to develop child protection networks in Gaya district and beyond.

I want to say that ALL the money we receive from Global Giving goes towards helping the project. As restricted fund we are duty bound to ensure its careful use for the maximum benefit of the children. On October 17th Global Giving are matching donations up to 30%. 

Thank you once again for all your support.

Hunger in Bihar

Dear Supporters,

Greetings from Bihar , in India.

Firstly let me tell you about that most important phenomenon in India- the monsoon after deficient rains the rains have a sting in the tail and are still continuing now when they should have abated. This is helping farmers.

But food inflation remains a huge problem. Regular recipients of this project progress report will know we have discussed this problem in the past but it is true even basic foodstuffs are becoming too expensive for the poor.  We have also talked about the very real problem of malnutrition particularly amongst children.

Please take a moment to look at this BBC report,

So this is the problem.

But I am happy to report that even in the heavy rains not a single meal was missed and we ensured the supplies reached the often isolated villages. Due to your support we can avoid the scenes shown on the BBC report. In addition, we can continue this important programme that reaches those most in need, everything we receive from Global Giving goes towards providing the children food.

 Just a reminder Global Giving are matching donations on October 17th at up to 30%

Thank you for your wonderful support,

Monsoon Report

Poor Family in Flood Affected District
Poor Family in Flood Affected District

Dear Supporters,

Following the pattern of recent years there is a North-South Split in the monsoon in Bihar. In the North although so far widespread flooding has been avoided, parts of the south are suffering from deficient rains.  Here is the situation in North Bihar,

Incessant rains in the catchment areas have caused rivers flowing through north Bihar to swell and flood parts of West Champaran, Saharsa and Kishaganj districts. Some of the rivers flowing through the area have crossed the danger mark.

Reports reaching Patna said flood waters have inundated several blocks of West Champaran district following release of water from Valmikinagar barrage. Several villages in Saharsa and Kishanganj were also submerged.

The floodwaters of Gandak and Bhapsa rivers completely submerged a girl’s school at Harna Tad in Bagaha sub-division. About 100 students were evacuated from the school hostel by the administration as the floods, which came yesterday, washed away a bamboo bridge connecting the school building. 

However the widespread flooding of recent years has yet to occur, this is the situation in the South,

Bihar Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh on Thursday said that 25 of 38 Bihar districts are drought-affected. The state government, however, has not officially declared drought in the state.

Singh said, “Though there has been good rainfall in some parts of Bihar, most districts have been facing drought because of below average rainfall.” The minister said the government would assess situation for a few more days and take a call on drought declaration in the affected districts. He also sought cooperation from the Opposition to mount pressure on the Centre to help the state fight drought.

We have people in the north closely monitoring the situation, and we now have good links with the local administration, ready to respond if the rivers rise further.

We send our thanks to all of for all of your help, we ready with immediate aid when the need arises, please look out for further reports.

Deepak Kumar
