Greetings from some Rescue Junction Children!!
Greetings from some Rescue Junction Children!!

Dear Friends and Supporters,

May I send my very best compliments of the season to you all from here in Bihar India.

There is much to report from Rescue Junction.

Firstly we hope to be in the future the centre in our for the free child line service in our area. It is a great compliment to be recommended for this vital service. Please look out for future updates with regard to this development.

We have had many admissions since our last report, but of course these emergency admissions are a very important part of our work only, as we provide 24 hour car with food and education for all street children in the area. With regard to the cases we make public we always get permission from the family and the young person concerned  to do so, and they agree because they know the more people that know about our work the better chance we have of getting the support we need for the work to continue in the future.

One girl was persuaded by her “boyfriend” to come to Gaya where she was drugged and sadly sexually assaulted before managing to run away from the house where she was kept for 24 hours and entered the nearest police station in a distressed state. After extensive counselling and medical care, and the arrangement of ongoing support she has been reunited with her family. As is often the case neither the girl nor her family wished to press charges against the perpetrators, however the police are aware of them and they are now under supervision. We have to respect the wishes of the victim and family, but you can be sure arrest will be a minute away if these people try anything similar anytime soon. For obvious reasons we are not publishing photographs of the victim in this case.

I have to report to you all a very sad thing.  Late at night a woman travelling with a small baby on a local train arrived at Gaya Station. But she had died, and the police arrived just in time to prevent some anti social elements from taking the baby in order perhaps to sell it, they have been arrested.

The very distressed child who we have named Anchal, which means Shelter, is being comforted by female staff at Rescue Junction. The woman (we think the mother) is awaiting a post mortem but remains unidentified. If we cannot trace Anchal’s family we will place her with the nearest recognised adoption home run by Mother Teresa in another district for adoption by a loving Indian family.  Contrary to what is sometimes understood there is a waiting list of such families to adopt and so we do not believe in International adoption placements.

We are both inspired and grateful for your wonderful support. I feel I cannot help but mention we have recently received a number of cheques through Global Giving UK from an anonymous source, whoever you are, thank you on behalf of all of our children so much!

And of course to everyone else who made a donation, no matter how small it all helps us to continue to provide these important services to vulnerable children.

With Kind Regards,

Sunita

Dear Friends and Supporters,

I am sure you are aware our work can sometimes be difficult but we are both determined and dedicated in our task.

You remember the previous story of trafficked children being stopped at Gaya Junction?. Well based on information received a raid was conducted on the factory in Jaipur Rajasthan by the Labour Department and Police rescuing 65 children from Bihar who were enslaved there in terrible conditions. 31 were from Gaya District and were transferred to Rescue Junction for rehabiltation, new clothes, good food and to be reunited with thier families.

It is days like these that give us strength to carry on, with your support we can look forward to rescuing even more children in the future.

Please follow our work on our facebook page

You can see a photograph of some of the children on our website,

We have also been able to fit new personal lockers for the children due to a kind donation from California. Thank you!

At this time if Indian Festivals may I send you  our best compliments of the season!

Please I remind you October 19th is BONUS MATCHING DAY where any donation you make will have extra value!

Thanks so much!

Trafficked
Trafficked

Greetings to all our friends and supporters,

I just wanted to keep you all up to date with all the news from Rescue Junction,

Seven children were found on Gaya Station who were being trafficked for work in a factory at Rajasthan.

After receiving extensive counseling, and securing follow up support from the local administration the children were all able to return to their village after being reunited with their families.

The reason this update has taken some time is that the Police having arrested the trafficker needed to organise a raid on the factory in Rajasthan.

I am pleased to inform you the raid has now taken place and many child labourers freed, some from Bihar but not from our area. They are all undergoing rehabilitation .

We now know that these children left their homes without any parental consent, having being lured away, and therefore the trafficker has now been charged with kidnapping and faces many years in Jail.

In addition, and this is rather a sad story, two young girls one only four months old were found abandoned on a local train and brought to Rescue Junction. The four month old girl is the youngest ever to be brought to the centre. Efforts are on, so far without success to locate the family

And to finish on an upbeat story, do you remember ASHA the little girl found abandoned on the station and after sometime was sent for adoption? We have news that a wealthy Indian family is going to adopt her and that she now has a wonderfull future ahead of her. Thanks as ever for your support.

Please follow us on Facebook and our Website by using the links.

Best Wishes

S Kumari

Baby Asha- a new life awaits

Hi Everyone,

This is Sunita with another update for our kind hearted and generous supporters on Global Giving.

It was our pleasure to welcome volunteers from the Trusts Village Experience Programme to Rescue Junction Recently

You can see some " dance therapy" in action with the volunteers at the centre by clicking on the facebook link below

Meanwhile a sad case, two young children abandoned by their mother we think, two girls aged about five and a baby only four months old on a local train, came to Rescue Junction some days ago. We also have admitted two missing boys both found by another NGO over 1,000 Miles away but who had come from somewhere in this area.

Our counselors are skilled in gently supporting and finding out these and other children's stories and then we can decide what is best for them.

Your support is vital in helping us to maintain our services as we rely entirely on donations.

We have managed to redecorate the centre and the volunteers helped paint some pictures and murals so the wall so the place is looking bright and colorful!

Once again thank you all for your help,

Sunita

Greetings to all our supporters!

The worst of the summer heat has gone but the welcome dmonsoon rains have faltered.

Here at Rescue Junction, lost and missing children continue to come to the centre and a little deaf boy who cannot remember how he got to Gaya was recently united with his family. We continue our rehabilitation efforts for all children at the centre.

Please visit our Facebook page and our website for more information, the links are below.

We also plan to hold a forum with other organisations working in other areas with street, missing, and homeless children which we will host at our Gyan Vikas Centre in Bodh Gaya.

We are also looking forward to welcoming volunteers on our Village Experience programme which will start shortly.

And we now have a new computer due to a donation received from the UK.

I would like to thank you as ever for your wonderful support for Rescue Junction.

On behalf of all of the children we send our heartfelt appreciation to you

Sunita
