For US$100/AUD$140 Ruth’s life was saved. Here’s her story:
“Hello, my name is Ruth and I’m 15 (real name withheld). I was born into a very poor Nepali family. My father was often drunk and would hurt me. I decided to go to India to find work and a man I didn’t know said he’d find something for me to do. I trusted him. When I was on my way to India, 3 Angel’s Nepal staff interviewed us at the Nepal/India border and I came to realise that this man had planned to give me to people that wouldn’t treat me very nicely. I’m very thankful that I was rescued. As I didn’t have a good environment at home to return to, I was taken to a safe house and I’m now being counselled, trained and given opportunities to learn skills such as sewing, tailoring, cooking and computers.”

Sapna is 16 and is from a large but poor family. Because of this, she had to quit her studies after the 10th grade and start working. She worked hard to help her family but due to the Covid-19 outbreak, the nationwide lockdown was implemented by the government, which created extreme financial hardship for Sapna and her family. One day, she received a call from an unknown number which almost changed her life.
When girls are smuggled over the border, either by force or deception, most are never found. Our partner, 3 Angels Nepal, is working hard despite the restrictions and travel limitations, to stop girls before they are trafficked.
Life has not always been easy for Saheli (name changed for protection) 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, her world changed after meeting a man she knew as ‘uncle’.
