In spite of these difficulties several sex trafficking victims were rescued and safely sent back to their homes in Bangla Desh. The government officials in Bangla Desh have been most helpful in minimizing bureaucratic delays and received the girls on their side of the border.

The total lockdown in India beginning In March created unprecedented problems. in the city of Hyderabad ASSET partner Prajwala faced the monumental task of feeding  nearly 3,000 hungry families.
