Dear friends and family, Ju…
Dear friends and family,

Just wanted to thank you again for your support and generous donations towards my birthday fundraiser for Nomi Network!!!! They have met their fundraising goal of 15k. As well, wanted to share this update with you from them:

"I hope this finds you doing well and you're enjoying your holidays! It has been an amazing year for Nomi Network and we are very excited to see our programs expand in India and Cambodia. We were just invited by a local police station in Bihar to start a training program in a women's prison. This is huge because traditionally, local law enforcement has had an adversarial relationship with non-profit organizations, especially those with a focus on anti-human trafficking. It is a very corrupt area of India. The co-founder of Nomi, Supei Liu, will conduct an assessment of the women's prison when she's there this January.

We also just hired a survivor of sex trafficking to work at our office while starting the Nomi training program. Rosi, was just rescued a few weeks ago. She was forced into prostitution by a man who told her family that he was going to marry her. The women in our program are standing up for her after being confronted by her pimp's mom who found her and was physically beating and threatening her. It is amazing to see the women in our program, who were timid and fearful two years ago, now rising up to protect and speak on behalf of other women in their community."

Many thanks again, and all the blessings to you and yours in the coming year!!

Best,
Christen
