33 Trafficked Children Rescued
“I live in a remote village high in the Himalaya mountains. One day a man came to our hut and told my parents, “I’ll send your child to a good school.” No one had taught them about the dangers of child trafficking, so my parents believed him. Along with many other children from my village, I was taken many days journey through my native Nepal and across the border into India. There, I was forced to live in a tiny, dark room and sleep in one bed with six other children. We were given barely enough food to survive.
One day a tall young man came. He argued with the trafficker for a long time, and then he took us all away from that place. First I was frightened, but then I realized he was taking me home! I was so happy. He fed us a good meal and then took us all back to our parents. We were so thankful to go home!”
Just in the nick of time WIN.Global caught wind of 33 beautiful Nepali children being trafficked into India. The trafficker had lurid intentions for the children; the girls would be sold for commercial sex exploitation, and the boys would be sold to have their organs harvested!
But ONE decision by ONE man saved their lives! Amar, WIN’s native coordinator of Nepal, heroically risked his life and rescued them. Now all the children are back home with their parents, and WIN has taught the parents what to watch out for so the children should never again be in danger. Moreover, WIN is also supporting the education of the children, so they can grow up with a bright future.
