Rashmi has been rescued because of you
In India, many young girls from poor villages make decisions to escape the extreme poverty they grew up in. Rashmi was one of these girls. She was born in a small village outside of Mumbai, India and lived with her aunt and uncle. Her life was filled with abuse, neglect, child labor, and hunger. Rashmi needed to escape and she dreamed of running away.
When she finally got a chance to leave her family behind, Rashmi went with a woman who promised her a good job in Mumbai. Little did Rashmi know, she was being sold into the red-light district. She was kept in a brothel and endured terrifying sexual abuse that was worse than the abuse she was trying to escape.
When our staff met Rashmi she was suffering from a skin ailment. We took her to our medical clinic and gave her treatment for her skin problems. Over time we started to build a friendship with Rashmi and counsel her in her ongoing struggles.
One day, Rashmi came to us with a desire to leave the sex trade. She was scared and didn't know what to do. Our team of counselors assured Rashmi we could help her get out. Good news! Rashmi was able to leave the trade and experience freedom! She was enrolled in a re-integration program and in the past six months has been learning English and other life skills.
Rashmi is free today because of your compassion and generosity. Thank you so much for your help to rescue women and children in the red-light districts.
