Hello Everybody.

It's me Sunita ( Director of Rescue Junction) again with another update.  Firstly I would like to congratulate our chairman Mr Deepak Kumar for meeting His Holiness the Dalai Lama recently ( please see  photo and our FB page  link is below) and should his Holiness ever be able to visit us a very warm welcome awaits him.

So how are the girls?  I will let one of them, Sita  tell you in her own words, (name changed,, words not changed  )

Respected greetings to you all.

My name is  Sita Kumari  I am so happy to be able to tell you how happy I am to be in Rescue Junction with the programme of support and training. If you have had nobody in your life that really cared about you how you would feel? Like I did before I came here. It is something nobody should ever feel. Its the worst feeling in the world and I am so glad it has gone forever. 

Please continue to help us and spread the word we are so very gratefull. Here we feel safe and cared about and we are learning usefull skills.

Thank you all!

Hello everybody,

My English is not so good but I am learning in school so i am writing this thank you letter in Hindi . I love my school do you like my new school bag? I got new clothes and I do not have to worry about all the books and things I will need .

Sometimes when I was left alone on the train and the police brought me to Rescue Junction Even though the staff were kind I would cry myself to sleep at night, I cried silently because I did not know what would happen to me .But I was no longer afraid.

After some time I went to a residential school where I made many new friends . I am learning a lot.

When the staff here at the centre told me how many people had helped me I cried again . With joy, I think now there are more good people in the world than bad. I want to help others when I grow up. Thank you so very very much, I can never forget what you have done for me.

Due to the kindness in your hearts you have filled ours with Joy!

Pramilla and her Sisters

Hi  everybody !

I am Sunita and I am in charge of Rescue Junction here in Gaya Bihar.

May I say you responded magnificently to the appeal to help the three orphaned sisters in our care, Thank you all so much . Below is an unedited letter from Pramilla translated from Hindi. We have changed the name as we always do due to our child protection procedures.  If you would like to help children like Pramilla and her sisters the Global Giving link for Rescue Junction is below. We really need help.

Dear respected persons of great repute,

I am Pramilla and I am writing on behalf of myself and my two sisters, When my father died and we did not even have the money for a cremation I buried my dad with my own hands. I do not know how we managed during that time of hunger and we did not know what to do, we were alone. and my sisters and I were starving. 

Then the District Magistrate who came to know about us from the villagers sent us to Rescue Junction and everything changed.

And now due to the kindness in your hearts you have filled ours with Joy . We do not fear the future. We know that thing which was unknown to us before we came here to the centre, happiness.

Thank you. Thank You. Thank you all

May GOD Bless you all.

Pramilla
