US$100 is all it takes to save a life

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.”

Lies, Tricks, and False Promises

Twelve Nepali girls were being trafficked to India with false promise of jobs. When all of these girls were intercepted and investigated about their travel plans, it was found that they were all tricked for fake job offers. They were falsely told that they would be performing dances in events and programs of rich people in India for which they would be receiving money.
