THE STORY:

ABC Nepal has helped hundreds of survivors of sex trafficking, rape, child sexual abuse, and other forms of violence against girls and women. They’ve set up more than 200 credit coops for rural women and educated thousands about women’s rights. I have worked closely with ABC for years, and my foster daughter, Ranju, lives at the shelter. You can read about their wonderful work in my book, Sex Trafficking in South Asia.
Just before the quake hit, ABC was informed that they had to move their shelter from its present location – the landlord decided he didn’t like having “that kind of women” around. They were searching for a new home and trying to raise money for the move. The quake damaged the home of ABC’s leader, Mrs. Durga Ghimire. Now she’s living in her car, working nonstop to care for her girls. The girls are camping out – continued severe aftershocks make it unsafe to enter the buildings. They are frightened, disoriented, and retraumatized. Where will they find a new home, with much of Kathmandu in ruins? Please help me mobilize funds for their move to a safe new home. These girls – and Mrs. Ghimire – have suffered enough.
