THE EVIL OF THOSE WHO WOULD SELL CHILDREN FOR SEX

Namaste to you all,

I hope this letter finds you and your family well

First may I introduce myself?  I am Riya the new Director of Rescue Junction here in Gaya. Many of you may know from the lovely farewell Sunita wrote in the last report on Rescue Junction on Global Giving that  Sunita left her post recently for personal reasons, and what a great Job she has done,  If you have not read her farewell it’s very moving and well worth reading.

You can find it here….

And so onto this report, concerning our special programme for girls here at Rescue Junction which includes all kinds of support and craft training for the girls that come through our doors at Rescue Junction.

When I went through my orientation and training before I took up my post I was shown some figures and I thought they might be interesting to share with you.

In 2015 so far a total of six raids with the police have taken place on local brothels and hotels with Rescue Junction staff rescuing 14 children (girls) the youngest of which was just 13 years of age. For obvious reasons I can’t divulge our future timetable, and plans for future raids but rest assured these people involved in this evil business can no longer rest easy. Over seven people have been arrested so far as a result of these raids and all are in Jail. It is regrettable that some of these persons are female.

But over 60 girls this year so far have come to Rescue Junction from all kinds of abusive situations.

Here is the story of one of them. (Not the real name)

Pritya has 2 brothers and all had gone to school. Her father was a mason. Four months ago she went to the fields near her home for call of nature .Two persons catch her by force, using perhaps chloroform and brought to the nearest railway station. After she recovered using threats of harm against her if she did not comply and brought her to Gaya railway station. Both person took her to the brothel and sold her The owner of brothel beat her. She were crying bitterly and when she said I want to go home go home then that woman beat..    A team from Rescue Junction raided the brothel, and rescued 9 minor girls.

Pritya needed a lot of counselling and the craft training helped of course. We have specially trained female counsellors who in my short period here I have seen how good they are. She has now gone home to her family but will come for counselling once a month for as long as she feels she needs the support.

She is 15 years of age.

She is back in school and getting back to a normal life, slowly healing as each day passes.

I thank you all, for your help as this, so important work needs help to continue. Through our careful records we have worked out it costs on average of $250 to rescue a girl and support her for up to a year.

So please help us rescue a girl child today, every single dollar helps,

Thank You,

Riya
