Can the Cycle of Sex Trafficking be Stopped?

Dear Donor,

We have seen that it can. As a person who cares about the issue of human trafficking, I want to thank you for taking a step to make a difference and join us in supporting heroes who are in these communities doing this important work. Urmi Basu, the Founder and Director of New Light India is one of those rare individuals who has devoted her life to helping children and women who have been victims of human trafficking.

While we raise money to build another shelter and safe home for the children, we appreciate those of you who have been so generous in helping us support the education and physical needs of the children. The care at the shelter is palpable and each child feels loved and cherished-a far cry from their life on the street. The children see doctors, are put in school, and many of the girls are entering college and vocational schools.

I know I speak for many when I thank you wholeheartedly for your generous support. We want to particularly thank the subscription donors who have decided to give an automatic monthly donation. Your support means so much.

Can the cycle of human slavery and sex trafficking be stopped? We are witnessing it every day. Please click on this link to read the article from a volunteer at New Light.
