While women are forced to sell their bodies in the brothels of India, their children are often forced to hide underneath the beds and wait for them. In addition, women are discouraged from having children as it is a “hassle” to brothel owners and many high-risk abortions are attempted each year. If a woman has a child, she is often forced to abandon it.
The day and night care center opened February 2018 and is a light in the midst of this darkness. The day and night care center is a safe and Christ-filled atmosphere for mother’s in the red-light to send their children. The children have a safe place to play, receive daily lessons, as well as Christ-centered teachings. Above all, the center will help to end the perpetual cycle of the children born in the red-light being sold into the red-light, as they will obtain instruction and have a solid Christian foundation. Children born to women in the red-light have also been highly stigmatized in society. This center is a positive and uplifting place for them to go!
There are over 7,000 women in slavery in the red-light district we serve in-- and this doesn't include the secret underground red-light where more women & children are being sold. We need your help to reach all these women and kids! We need to provide for the needs of the children in the care center including well balanced meals and pay for the staff at the care center. The women in the red-light need medical attention as many have HIV, the pregnant women need prenatal care including doctors appointments, and much more! Please consider partnering with us on a monthly basis!
