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.”

Alone, Broken, and Shattered

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’.

Fake Job Offer

Padmini (name changed for privacy and protection), 20, was spotted by our 3 Angels Nepal monitoring staff while doing their routine checks around the bus station. They saw her holding hands with a man but she seemed reluctant to go with him. Upon inquiry, they found out that Padmini didn’t know the man, so she was brought to a transit home where she shared her story.

Traffickers Convicted

In 2019, staff members from Tiny Hands Nepal intercepted four women in one of the borders and counseled them about the dangers of human trafficking. They also encouraged the women to file a case against their trafficker but they were reluctant to do so. With no case to process, they were sent home after the counselling. During the interview, our staff thought that one of the women seemed very suspicious. True enough, the same woman threatened the other girls that she wouldn't return their money and that they will be sent back abroad again.
