COVID EMERGENCY UPDATE FROM RESCUE JUNCTION AND SIMI'S STORY

Namaste to All

You must be aware of the current crises unfolding here in India.

It’s very grim as you know it is a national emergency. We wanted all our supporters to know how much we appreciate your support especially at this time and send our heartfelt thanks to all of you.

We also wanted you to know that Rescue Junction is classed as an essential emergency service by the local administration and as such our staff and the centre is continuing to function (at almost full capacity) in every aspect of the centre’s work.

Our staff are still working on the station identifying children who may be trafficked, escaping abuse or just lost and frightened. Rescue Junction working under enormously difficult circumstances in an environment that is as covid safe as is possible at this time.

We are also helping with our Covid response programme but this project has benefited from many volunteers including 3rd year medical students to aid and assist those who need urgent assistance

Admissions during the last month include Simi (name changed)

Simi is 15 years of age and comes from a very poor village. Her family are labourers in a brick kiln. Simi was promised domestic work in Kolkata and to live in the house with a chance of an education. When she arrived at Kolkata that person who accompanied her for some reason abandoned her at the station. She was befriended by a taxi driver (an unauthorised taxi) who took her home and tried to rape her. Running out of the house the neighbours called the police but the driver had run away. Enquires are on.

The Kolkata police though the ChildLine rescue network of which Rescue Junction is part made the necessary arrangements for her to be safely escorted to the centre.

After a period of counselling Simi is now safely back home under supervision of our outreach team.

Our team are rescuing children like Simi all the time, our child protection services are sadly needed now more than ever.

Thank for your support
