Greetings to all from the Junction
We hope this update finds you and your family well.
As those who follow us on our FB page will know we have just been involved in a major new operation with the labour department and police to smash another big child labour ring .
Through details given by previously rescued children we were able to piece together a network of child trafficking sending children as young as seven from poor families here in Bihar to factories in parts of Rajasthan .
We wanted to rescue as many children as possible and not leave any behind so surveillance was set up to identify all of the factories, mostly making cheap jewellery that were illegally employing children.
At the end of the operation raids were held and a total of 178 children were rescued in a single morning
All of them were escorted in two special coaches by train to Rescue Junction for counselling support and reconciliation with thier families.
The average age was 12.
We thank you all for your donations without which the work would simply not be possible .
And please remember you can keep up with all of our work by following us on Facebook, the link is below.
Please help us continue to stop child labour.
