In these uncertain times we really need your help……

Namaste Everyone.

We hope you are and your family are safe and well. The world is experiencing a huge upheaval as you all know and throughout the crisis the team at Rescue Junction have continued to work 24/7. We have taken all the measures we can to ensure our staff and children are safe but donations have suffered and we really need your help.

We know times are hard but if any of you feel able to start a regular recurring donation on GlobalGiving that would help our children so very much and directly enable our rescues and intervention to help children in trouble to continue without any interruptions. This would have a direct impact in helping children. We thank all of you who have donated and who are donating and our children send their heartfelt gratitude for everything you have done for them and your compassion. 

Please help us to continue to serve lost abandoned and abused children. Children like Anand (name changed) below…

Anand was found wandering the streets of Gaya alone and afraid.

He was over 1500 miles from home having hitched a ride on a lorry (truck) from the state of Andhra Pradesh, where he was working as a child labourer. The driver abandoned him just outside Gaya. After being brought to the safety of Rescue Junction and being counselled by our trained staff a sadly familiar story of abuse and trauma unfolded at the hands of his cruel “owner” as called him… he ran away after he phoned his village on the drivers phone and found out his mother had died from Covid. 

 

His father was working he thought in Bihar in Gaya and he tried to find him (in fact we located his father in Patna). Despite the limitations on transport at this time Rescue Junction were able to reunite Anand with his father and arrange places on very limited trains so they could both return home safely.

It doesn’t bear thinking about what would have happened to Anand without Rescue Junction..... we know from our records that the total cost of this intervention from start to finish was $120 including all food care and accommodation. Anand was one of many children we were able to rescue at this time of Covid.

We really need to help to help even more children, and to keep our doors open to every child in need.

Thank you so much for your kindness and compassion.

With best wishes to you and your family

Hi Everyone

This is Riya with another special report from Rescue Junction.

Firstly, I hope in these difficult and dangerous times that this mail finds you and your family all well.

Here at Rescue Junction our work goes on.

Recently a baby girl was abandoned in a field near a Railway Bridge just near Gaya.

In the summer heat and dumped in a cardboard box this tiny child perhaps one or two days old would not have survived long. Fortunately a passer by heard the cries and contacted the police.

Here at Rescue Junction we have a small specialised baby care team thanks to your support, and they rushed to the police station with the doctor on call who pronounced the baby well but hungry and dehydrated. After 24 hours in hospital for observation the child came into Rescue Junction for care and protection.  We will after all due enquiries ensure that the child goes for adoption into a loving Indian family who will cherish her and love her and give her a wonderful life.   

Everybody here at the Junction wishes to thank you for all of your wonderful support.

Please take care,

From

Riya, the staff and children and everyone at Rescue Junction

Greetings and Namaste to you all,

We send this report to you with the hope that you are safe and well.

Here Rescue Junction has been classed as an essential emergency service and I want to recognise and thank our brave staff for continuing to work under these unique circumstances. We have been issued with emergency passes and the centre has remained fully open to respond to reports of abuse, lost and children in trouble across the district. We have faced extra expenses in providing PPE and we have had to adjust our accommodation to take into account social distancing but not a day of our vitally important services has been missed.

People First has taken initiative and provide food materials for 201 poor families who lost their work in our working areas in Gaya district in Bihar because of lock down due to prevention of covid -19 and handed over all the food materials to district administration for peacefully distribution among the most needy families. Thanks for all team members who have provide their support for packaging and distribution.

We thank you as ever for your wonderful support and we will be sending you further updates very soon.

Your help is needed more than ever.

With best wishes

Riya

Namaste Everyone.

Its time for another report.

May I wish you all a very festive season and thank you for care concern and compassion.

Its is my duty to start this report with something very sad.

An adoption centre here in Gaya (nothing to with People First) has been closed down and four people including two women and the director have been charged with serious child sexual offences. Again, this happen… children already in difficulty have been sent to homes full of abuse.

The welfare department told us as some survivors of this terrible abuse were sent to the protection and care of Rescue Junction,” thank God for Rescue Junction where we know children are safe”

We have been very busy as usual a young boy somehow found his way on a train all the way from Chennai in the South of India . He was deaf and dumb but our expert counsellors were able to find his mother and they were escorted back home .

I cannot write this report without mentioning that the administrative director of People First Mr Rakesh Ranjan has been appointed as Chairman of the CWC ( child welfare committee ) the key child welfare body in Gaya District . The government took cognisance of his experience in child protection with People First so congratulations to him on his appointment to this very important role .

We need your help more than ever,

With Thanks

Riya
