There are millions of street children in India, many living on railway stations like Gaya Junction. This is a humanitarian appeal; directly providing stuff to keep these kids warm. Rescue Junction helps keep them safe. In addition many poor families living in slums nearby suffer greatly in the winter, as their homes are often no more than hovels made mainly of plastic and old tins. Young children. especially babies are most at risk.
Through our Rescue Junction Staff we are in a unique position to identify those most in need, there will be no mass giveaways, blankets and sweaters etc will be given quietly and carefully to the children and families who really need them. This appeal will save lives.
It is the aim of the trust to engage with the police, railway authorities, the judicial system and local government in helping to provide a child safety network in the district. This has the potential to help thousands of kids.
