Radio Help Line Served as A Lifeline for Trafficking Victim

Aashika (name changed) fell in love with a boy from a nearby village and after a short time, they eloped and married each other.

A month  after their marriage, her husband went to India to earn money. She looked after her in-laws very well and had a good relation with them. Two years passed but her husband was still out of contact. The family doubted that he was still alive so she went home to her parent’s house. After another six months, her husband returned home so she went to live at her husband’s house once more.

Not long after, they decided to move to India where she was sold by her husband to a brothel. Her physical and mental health quickly deteriorated and before long, she was kicked out of the brothel. One day she met with a Nepali in India who wanted to help her. The man had heard the 3 Angels Community Radio program, ‘Nepali Cheli.’ When the man called the help line, the staff arranged to meet them both at the border. The team found her in an unstable situation and mentally ill. In coordination with local police, the address and contact of her parents were found. When her parents came, she disclosed the horrors that she faced inside the brothel.

Aashika received counselling and she was reunited with her parents. A case has been registered with the police against the pimp.

It’s amazing how media serves as a platform not only to raise awareness but also to combat human trafficking.
