Thank you for helping trafficked women in India.

By John Sparks | President, India Partners

Dear Friend,

Thank you for your help in providing children and women with a day of safety from India's red-light distrticts. Your gift is making a tremendous difference in the lives of women and children trapped in a life of sexual slavery. Over the past few months, 151 women and 195 children residing in the brothels were helped through various programs.

You are making a lifesaving difference for women and children in India! Thanks for helping a woman like Deepa.

When Deepa was 10 years old, she was married off and sent away to live with her husband and in-laws. The family she married into didn't treat her well and often abused her. One day, she decided to run away and the rickshaw driver took her to a place where she was sold into the red-light area. She was only 12 years old. She tried to escape, but she failed each time. Deepa was forced into the trade and managed to escape a few years later. But sadly, she just ended up in a different red-light district.

It took our staff some time develop a good relationship with Deepa. She was very depressed and didn't want any help. But over time Deepa opened up. She came by our weekly health clinics for some medical care because she suffered from Hepatitis B. She would always receive a nutritious meal and she brought her child in to get much needed medical care as well. Over a period of time, their health got better and they started to feel well. Deepa now has hope in her life and feels grateful for the help she received for her and her family.

Special opportunity! Right now you have a chance to change more lives in India. One of our photos was selected for Global Giving's 2015 Photo Contest. Vote now and help us win $1,000 to help more orphans in India receive an education. Voting will just take a minute of your time.
