This past quarter, 90 trafficked women and 79 children residing in Mumbai’s red light districts have been helped.

The women and children have benefited from counseling, pre-primary classes, and medical interventions. Many women and their children are very susceptible to contracting diseases like HIV/AIDS and other STDs. Your support provides services like medical care and helps women and children get tested to receive any necessary medications or treatment. (In the photo above, women are learning about good nutrition).

Shabana is a woman who has been helped because of people like you. Shabana got pulled into the sex trade at the age of 13. She ran away from home because she could no longer tolerate the abuse by her family. But she didn't realize she would end up in a far worse living situation. Shabana started working in the red-light districts and soon contracted HIV.

When she gave birth to her daughter, Ayesha, the baby also contracted the disease. Shabana was not taking any medicine for the HIV disease and she became very weak. She gave up on life and couldn't care for her baby. However, after getting some counseling, Shabana's attitude started to change.

She started taking the medication to help her body feel better. Her daughter was also taken care of. Today, Shabana's health is impoved and she is living in a better place for her and her child. She has made a lot of progress and is looking for a new and different job to support her and her daughter.

Thank you again for your gift. Because of your support, women like Shabana can find hope and healing by being in a safe house. To help more children and women in Mumbai's red light districts, you can give another gift today! You will be changing their lives forever by providing them with a safe place to live.

Children like Soni are safe because of you
Children like Soni are safe because of you

This past quarter, trafficked women and their children received physical and emotional support that has truly benefited their lives. Through counseling, pre-primary and remedial classes, medical interventions, feeding programs, fun clubs, and weekly gatherings, 383 trafficked women and 201 children residing in Mumbai’s red light districts have been helped. The women living in the red light districts yearn for hope and freedom and have expressed a desire for their children to be safe.

Soni is a 5-year-old girl whose life has been transformed thanks to donors like you. Soni lived in the red light district because her mother was sold into the sex trade. Wanting a better life for her daughter, Soni’s mother approached our staff about giving Soni a safe place to live. Soni was welcomed to Anandalay, our safe house for girls, and quickly made friends with the other girls.

Normally there is a period of adjustment but Soni never cried and got adjusted to her new environment immediately. She is very interactive, obedient, and exhibits a maturity way beyond her age. With encouragement and love from the house parents and other children, Soni is showing significant progress and we are excited that she has a bright future ahead of her.

To help more children and women in Mumbai's red light districts, you can give another gift today!
