WHERE IS LOVE?.... You’ll find it here!

Namaste!

Warm festive greetings of the season to you and I hope you find this year end update interesting.

Another year has gone by and the situation economically is poor, and  a war in Europe, and the aftermath of Covid  are being felt by so many.

India has not escaped the world situation at all of course and prices of everyday essentials have increased so much but not wages. Our Covid programme continues to help vulnerable families find work and support.

I thought you would like to hear a summary of the year.

At the Junction although our work has been affected by the new construction for our brand-new children’s centre, we have rescued over 750 children to date this year. The youngest was a new-born baby and others included boys and girls running away from abuse, child labourers rescued (with arrests following for the traffickers), lost children and girls being taken for the sex trade. Every single child has been placed in a safe situation with care and protection in mind through our outreach programme and our 24-hour staff and centre where the doors never close to children in urgent need and distress. That we have been able to provide this vitally important service is due your compassion and generosity and our children thank you so much for your kindness. On the GlobalGiving  website we have our special winter appeals and our campaign against child beggars.

I will leave you with a story from Rescue Junction. We are a secular organisation and celebrate all festivals. We have just been able to show the film “Oliver” in Hindi which the children really enjoyed. During the song. “Where is love” one girl was heard to say to her fiiend sitting next to her..... "where is love? ....you’ll find it here"…

Thank you

Season’s greetings

Namaste

This update is in appreciation of all of you and your compassion and kindness. Every single donation no matter how small is so important in helping all of the children and young people we serve.  

We know times are hard and economically difficult for so many which is why we appreciate your continued support and help for our children.

So, thank you all!!  Each and Every one of you!

Here is a recent case here at Rescue Junction…

 A phone caller informed us that three children were being child trafficked and will be taken to Delhi by catching Mahabodhi train from Gaya Junction. We informed the Railway Police and Station Superintendent. After which a team was formed by RPF Gaya. During the search of the station, the team saw children and possible child traffickers near the ticket counter. After that the children were questioned. The children said that we do not know this person we are with. On being asked by the special team the men with them admitted to Rescue Junction staff that they were involved in child trafficking. After which the children were freed from child trafficking and handed over to Rescue Junction and legal action was taken against the child traffickers.  After admission to Rescue Junction and counselling the children and families were offered support and assistance ,and the children took part on our child rehabilitation programme and are now  back at home under our supervision, and are  in full time education.

The children were 10,11 and 12 years of age.

It is because of your support we can continue this work,

Thank you so much

Namaste Everyone

Warm greetings from us all at Rescue Junction!

For this newsletter I thought I would tell you about just one of the many rescues we have done recently as our close cooperation with the police continues to make it as difficult as possible for criminals to sell and exploit children

We spend a lot of time in the community and our community team run awareness programmes about child trafficking constantly.

As you know there is an emergency toll free number 1098 which children and anybody can phone for immediate assistance and help. The call will be answered within three rings.

It was on this number that a concerned member of the public rang when he saw a group of children with two men who looked worried and frightened near Gaya Station. One had been slapped and was crying.

We work closely with the Railway Protection force anti trafficking unit who kept the group under surveillance until our rapid response team could reach the group where the two men were arrested and were subsequently interviewed and sent to jail charged with very serious trafficking offences.

We keep our team ready 24/7 so that hopefully not a single child is smuggled from the station. It costs $1000 a month to provide all expenses and costs for the Rapid Response Team so your kind donations big or small are so welcome to help us do our work, and everybody here at the Junction sends our heartfelt thanks and gratitude to you.

As for the children, of which the youngest was only ten years old they are safe and well and our counsellors are engaging with the parents and the local community.

They were offered $10 a week for work but experience tells us they would be very unlikely to be paid anything and would be locked in the factory campus mistreated and abused. So the work of the response team is very important and credit and thanks to them.

GlobalGiving is offering a Bonus Day on July 20th where they will add to donations over $100 but any amount is so helpful and we again send our thanks to you.

We will have some stories from the children in our next report.

In the meantime, we wish you all a great summer.

Namaste and Greetings to you all.

Here for our latest update are two stories from the Junction

NAMES WHEN MENTIONED HAVE BEEN CHANGED TO PROTECT IDENTITIES

Ranjeet Kumar

We get to know about this child through Police officer in charge  Fatehpur that a deaf and dumb child had been found missing in Paharpur , Gaya . Then we reached the PS Fatehpur and received that child and at first, we provided food and informed the local community about this child. Then we took him to Rescue Junction done a Covid 19 test and produced before the child welfare department in Gaya. We regularly coordinated with the Police and we found his parents and we got to know that he was missing from many days.

 Finally, now he is in his home with their parents. After counselling and support he was returned to his parents

Family in Crisis 

It is very sensitive story of one migrant family. The wife of a labourer, who came from Aligarh to Gaya Junction, died at the brick factory while giving birth to a child The father after no help from the brick works left there with a three-day-old new-born and his family and a total of five children. Coming to Rescue Junction for help they all were given food and water by PFECT, and due to no money, the family was provided transported to his home by vehicle on PFECT Vehicle. Due to his very tight financial condition, the team of PFECT visited his house and provided them with ration, milk and other necessities and the team has linked them to the government scheme to provide a house and food. All the  children are being supervised by our community team and offered further support including opportunities for the children to start their education.

 Once again thank you all for your kind and generous support

Priya
