Helping the Helpless during the Pandemic

One of the key objectives of the 3 Angels Community Radio (3ACR) is to inform the public and raise awareness on relevant issues, particularly human trafficking. This holds true even when the COVID-19 pandemic struck the country.

During the pandemic crisis, they were able to relay reliable information from the World Health Organization while maintaining most of their regular programming. One of the staff shares, “When the situation began to worsen among the people regarding the shortage of food and essential supplies, we did not know how to be of help to those starving and dying. We are simply not able to help as many as we come to know, however, we are helping as much as possible with our staff committing to sacrifice one meal per day to help some.” The 3ACR team were able to connect people with their local government representative for help. Many local government areas have been able to feed 1 meal a day to those in desperate need. The reach of 3ACR has grown to almost all parts of Nepal, and more and more people are hearing that there is help.

This is also providing the opportunity to spread the word even further about the dangers of trafficking and where to find help if needed. As poverty and desperateness increase significantly, so will human trafficking.

The community radio has never been this busy, but it is all worth it because of the help they are able to provide to people especially during these trying times.

I will not stop speaking up against trafficking

My recent visit to New Delhi impacted me deeply. I saw lots of innocent Nepali teenage girls and women who were trafficked and betrayed by pimps. With the things I saw, I could not hold back my tears.

One particular day, the 3 Angels Community Radio (3ACR) ‘Legal Counselling’ program was airing.

She shared the things that were happening in her life. The 3ACR staff were concerned for her safety and asked her to come and talk with the lawyer who presents the 'Legal Counselling' program.
