Women Missing since Lockdown

Despite the pandemic and strict lockdown restrictions, 70 Nepali women were reported missing over the past 6 months and of those, only 16 have been found*.  Our partner 3 Angels Nepal play a key role in helping families submit missing persons report with local police. They are also working closely with police, keeping watchful eyes and finding missing girls and women. Since March, when lockdown occurred in Nepal, 42 women have been reported missing through our partner. Only 6 have been found.

When girls are smuggled over the border, either by force or deception, most are never found. 3 Angels Nepal is working hard despite the restrictions and travel limitations, to stop girls before they are trafficked.
