Two rescued in Nepal during shelter-in-place
Despite strict travel restrictions, two young women have been rescued at border crossings in Nepal.
With a surge of COVID-19 cases late last month in the country, districts have temporarily restricted travel. Movement is limited to essential workers except for a window of time reserved for grocery shopping. Because of our work and relationship with the police, our agents are considered essential workers and remain on call, monitoring movement at all of our border locations.
A few traffickers have still attempted to lure young women out of the country. Some borders are simply rural roads with no barriers or gates, which allows foot traffic to still trickle back and forth.
One of the women our agents rescued tested positive for COVID-19 and is isolating at a quarantine facility. The other has been reunited with her family.
