THE SAFE HAVEN AT THE END OF THE TRACK

May we send our heartfelt thanks and greetings with compliments of the season from Rescue Junction in Bihar. Let me bring you up to date with all the latest news from the project.

During the past weeks many missing children have come through the doors of Rescue Junction, but Rescue Junction is there for other vulnerable groups also. A 20 year old woman,(we shall call her Pramilla, not her real name) was brought to the centre by the Police, very distressed after bieng found alone and crying on the station. We knew she had run away but pramilla was unable to speak and also suffered from deafness, so specialist counselling was required. It turned out Pramilla was being seriously abused by a male relative. On the basis of medical and other evidence criminal charges have now been made against the perpetrator. Our next task was to find some caring relatives to support her, with access to counselling and supervision of her well being, and this has now been arranged.

We often comment in these reports, What would have happened to Pramilla if Rescue Junction wasn't there?

The sad fact is there is no other programme available in the whole district to help her, the need for Rescue Junction is plain to see. The referring Police Officer commented to the Rescue Junction staff, " I cannot think of a safer place for her than here". 

At this festive time please think of the homeless and street children of the world, those abandoned and unloved, who just need someone to care.

Thank you for caring, and helping to keep the centre's doors open to those in need.
