Alone, Broken, and Shattered

Life has not always been easy for Saheli* (15) and her family however, with her father working hard, they still had a good life. When COVID-19 hit the world and Nepal went into lockdown, everything changed. Saheli’s father lost his job and so providing daily food for the family was difficult. In April, Saheli went out to buy some vegetables for the family and met a man she knew as ‘uncle’. They walked together for a while until they came to quiet riverbank. That was when Saheli’s whole world changed. No one was around to hear her screams. She was left on the river bank alone, broken and shattered. Some of her friends heard about what happened and went to get help from our partners, 3 Angels Nepal (3AN) help desk in that region. The manager there is well known in the area and has helped many women and girls through rescues across the border as well as local trafficking and abuse victims.

The 3AN help desk manager went with Saheli and her family to the police station where they filed a rape case against the man. The 3AN staff was there for the whole procedure to ensure that police weren’t bribed during the investigation (which sometimes happens). A court case has also been filed and we are waiting the court’s decision.
