Kalpana, India: Medical Care After Her Rescue from Trafficking

World of Children Inc's Photo

THE STORY:

Kalpana (name changed) is originally from Nepal. Her family was very poor and she was one of seven children. One day, a girl staying in a neighboring house tricked her into slavery with promises to help Kalpana find a good job. Kalpana was imprisoned in a brothel and forced to work as a prostitute. Eight months later, Rescue Foundation, founded by World of Children Award Honoree Triveni Acharya, partnered with the Social Security Department’s Crime Branch to conduct a raid on the brothel where Kalpana was being kept. After the raid, Kalpana was entrusted to the care of the Rescue Foundation for rehabilitative care. At the Rescue Foundation home, she received appropriate medical and psychological treatment and then an opportunity to resume her education and begin vocational training. She has a new life, thanks to the care she received and continues to receive. Read Kalpana's full story here: http://www.worldofchildren.org/blog/kalpanas-rescue-and-recovery/ More Info: Girls rescued from sex-trafficking often suffer from sexually transmitted diseases, including HIV. These girls require special attention and care including diagnostics, medication, and psycho-social counseling to help them recover from trauma. Reaching our goal of $20 raised will mean a girl rescued from trafficking like Kalpana receives the medical care she needs to help her begin her road to healing and recovery. (Each additional $20 raised means another girl will receive the same care!)
