Dear Friends and Supporters 

 Hi this Riya again with another Rescue Junction update. 

How are you all?  I hope you are well. 

Here the colourful festival of Holi has come and gone and the children enjoyed themselves. 

I thought for this update I would just share with you some stories of children coming through our doors last month, and thank you for helping to keep them open! 

(names have been changed per our child protection policy) 

Savtri (15)

Savitri was kidnapped on her way to school by  four men in a car who covered her mouth. She remembers nothing but woke up, terrified on Gaya Station railway platform. Members of the public handed her to the GRP (Government Railway Police). She was traumatised and medical examinations confirmed she had been raped multiple times. Savitri is still being counselled and being offered gentle support and constructive activities like craft and in time she will be able to return home to her parents when she is ready but with ongoing support and care from the centres specially trained staff. 

Shafi (8)

Shafi a boy aged eight decided to have an adventure and on his way to school took an auto from his college 50km away to Gaya. Eating samosa in a small café near the station, the owner was concerned when he was approached by three men, and intervened. He brought him personally to Rescue Junction where he has been counselled in a kindly but firm way with his parents and he returned home after a few days. 

Prakash (10) 

Prakash has never been to school and his father is ill and his mother was so poor. He was found working in a tea shop washing plates for 30 rupees a day (about 50 cents). He was rescued by the special labour department team formed with rescue Junction staff. Efforts are on to get him in mainstream education and for the time being he remains at Recue Junction.

Sanwi (20 days) 

In a town, some 30Km away from the centre a 20-day old baby was thrown away near a riverbank. Found fortuitously by a member of the public she informed the local police who brought her to Rescue Junction for care and protection.

 Per the norms and laws this little girl will be offered for adoption.  

Soni Kumari (14) 

Soni has had a difficult life. When her mother died when she was young, her father remarried only to constantly fight with his new wife and eventually she committed suicide by drinking poison. Soni went to live with her grandmother could not afford to keep her so she ended up with her aunty in anther village. Throughout all this she managed to educate herself up to class seven. She became friendly with a local boy and together they ran away to seek a better life together and were removed from a running train by the government railway police. Rescue Junction staff are working with her to decide the best option for her welfare and wellbeing. 

The above is just a small sample of the work of the centre in just one month. 

Thank you all, and I hope you like the picture of the children taking part in a colourful demonstration against child marriage!
