Food drops help rescue 141 children
In an undisclosed country, 141 children were rescued over the course of one month. Each child entered our community care program.
Most of those rescued, including girls as young as eight and nine years old, were being sexually exploited as their only means of providing food for themselves or their families.
Once rescued, survivors in community care are able to receive our services while living in the familiar setting of their own homes. Services include monthly food packages, medical checkups as well as vocational training to empower them towards safe employment in the future.
To distribute food regularly to survivors in our care, we coordinate monthly food drops in multiple communities alongside our partner in the country. These efforts also allow us to locate and rescue more children from exploitation each month.

Each survivor will receive an individualized freedom plan. She will be assisted by caseworkers, counselors and other reintegration staff in the coming months.

34 rescued in Nepal
Thirty-four girls and women were rescued at the border of Nepal.
Many of the survivors snuck off to the border after their trafficker offered them marriage or a job abroad. Little did they know these promises were false, merely baits to hook them from their home and to a life of trafficking.
One of the survivors was a six-year-old girl on the cusp of being sold abroad, not by an unknown trafficker but her aunt and uncle.Full Story
