After rescue at the transit center
Bikram, Suman and Bishal, brothers who are 10, 9, and 5 years old, lost their mother in the terrible earthquake last year, when their home collapsed on top of her, killing her instantly. The mother provided for her sons, by selling home-grown vegetables.
Within days, the motherless boys were on the verge of being trafficked out of the country. Well aware of the alarming rise of human trafficking of children after natural disasters, NYF was working with local authorities to establish safe transit homes. Police intercepted the boys, and NYF was able to take them in at J House, NYF’s home for boys.
Counselors from NYF’s Ankur Counseling and Training Center, who specialize in the treating children suffering from trauma, have been working closely with the boys to ease them into their new home and help them recover from the loss of their mother. The boys regularly visit their father, an impoverished rickshaw driver.
The brothers are healthy and safe, attending an excellent school in Kathmandu, and love to ride bikes, play basketball and soccer.
Thousands of emotionally-traumatized children and youth have benefitted from the psychosocial services of Ankur, a pioneer in psychological therapy for disadvantaged children in Nepal.
Your donation gives Bikram, Suman and Bishal and other traumatized children the counseling, support and therapy they need to turn a life of despair into one filled with hope and possibility.
Thank you for your continued support!
