Some new touching stories and how we're helping

The past few months have been a real roller coaster for our staff with so many sad stories of children to deal with. At the same time, we are very happy that we are there to help them as there is no other organisation to assist them in any way. 

Recently, we were contacted by the police and asked to help an 8 year old boy who saw his mum being killed by his aunt and uncle. His dad is in prison for a different crime so he was under the care of his grandmother who decided to send him to a hotel to work. He was physically abused there by the hotel workers, had to work very long hours and didn't get paid for the work. When the police found him, he was wearing plastic bags instead of clothes. Now he is safe with us and is getting all the necessary counselling and care. He has other 4 siblings under the care of the grandmother - all are very scared and not safe, with one 6 years old girl also working in a different hotel. We are now working on bringing all the children to our shelters and then we will plan for their future. 

We have also finally managed to get birth certificates for the two girls that have been staying with us for just over a year and we are now able to move them to our new Janakpur safe house for girls. This was a huge achievement for the staff as getting birth certificates and citizenship is a very long process - especially when the children have no parents. Without these documents the children are not even able to attend school. So the girls will embark on their journey to Janakpur this week where our social worker and the counsellor will be planning their future to ensure they receive good education and best possible start in their lives. 

Another big achievement has been a series of meetings that have led to an MOU to be signed in the next few weeks between us and the Chamber of Commerce in Birgunj. As part of the MOU, the Chamber of Commerce have committed to assisting us with finding jobs for the parents/guardians/families of the children that we help. This will make a huge difference to the lives of so many children over there. 

Thank you again for all the support. It means so much to us and to our children.
