Six hundred survivors of sex trafficking are being forced to relocate because of the construction of a new mall in Hyderabad. They have three months to buy land to build a new shelter.
This August, 600 survivors of sex trafficking will be forced to relocate because of the construction of a new mall in Hyderabad. Funding is urgently needed to secure land to build a new shelter for the women.
Child victims of trafficking for commercial sexual exploitation are worst hit with the trauma of sexual abuse and the HIV/AIDS disease. They are exposed to violence and adult experiences very early in life and are victims of social stigma and discrimination.
As the organization struggles to find a solution, securing land in a suitable location is difficult. The current shelter is located in the heart of the city giving women easy access to education and jobs.
The organization has successfully found 4 acres of land close to the city of Hyderabad, enabling these women to keep their jobs. A new shelter will be built there and will serve as a safe haven for the survivors who seldom find acceptance in society.
