SHAME / SICK
Human Trafficking Rescue Program....
Every day more than 54 young girls and women are trafficked out of Nepal and into India to enter a life of slavery. Every single day.
If 54 children went missing in one day in a country such as Australia, America or Britain, there would be an outcry, but these girls are different. They are the lost girls of Nepal.
Today is your chance to help to save the life of a lost child.
The border between Nepal and India is 1,000 miles long with just 14 checkpoints along the route. This makes it easy to smuggle over 30,000 women and young girls (mostly aged between 12 and 25) from Nepal to India every year. In recent times, some girls as young as 8 have been rescued from traffickers.
The girls are taken from their homes and communities to work as sex slaves in the brothels of Mumbai, Bangalore, Delhi, Siliguri or Kolkata. This is a life of abuse and fear; a life without hope.
The Tactics of the Child Sex Trafficker.
Many of the women and children are from poor, remote areas of Nepal who are struggling to look after their families. They are targeted in several ways:
Some are abducted from their villages and drugged.
Others are offered well-paid jobs in the city that could support their entire family.
Young girls are enticed with promises of marriage by wealthy businessmen, so her family allows her to travel to the city to be wed.
Once in the city, she is taken to a warehouse brothel full of rooms divided only by sheets. She will be auctioned here. The younger she is, the higher the price she will be sold for. Virgins are the most valued; as it is believed that a virgin from Nepal can cure an AIDS victim in India.
This is the start of her ‘new’ life. It is a life full of disease where she stands a high chance of contracting an STD or even AIDS. Murder is common, as is abuse and beatings. To her captors, she is a mere commodity, with a short shelf life.
Just imagine for a moment that this is your life, without dignity, without respect or love, denied even basic health care, sold to the highest bidder and given fewer rights than a pet dog.
It’s horrible to even imagine it for just a minute, so how much worse must it be to live that scenario every single day?
The facts are hard to accept but there are people working tirelessly to not just stop the trade but to prevent it in the first place.

This 18 wheeler lost brakes on the tricky, steep, curvy road up Lookout Mountain, near Chattanooga, Tennessee, 1,700 miles SE of here in Utah.
They live in Apison, TN, but used to live on the mountain. Susan's parents live up there, on the Georgia end of Lookout Mountain.
This happened Sabbath morning, Feb. 17.
I'm so thankful that my wife is still alive tonight!! She went up Lookout Mountain on her way to church this morning only a few minutes before this happened! She isn't sure but she may have even seen the truck on it's way down which would have put her within a minute of this crash!
