Help Rescue One Million Children From Sex Trade In South Asia

Not just another cause. Have you lately seen a 7 years old girl, may her be your daughter niece or a relative. They are so beautiful and tender like little angels.
Can you imagine the impact of such experience on a child for the rest of her life?
A friend said that children are resilient and get over an incident. Do they really get over it or block it out because it hurts too much to think about it?
I cannot imagine, an adult male having an intercouse with a child at such age.  Imagining the experience of that little girl sends shivers down my spine.
  • There is the physical pain and blood like you are going to die
  • Psychological trauma
  • Feelings of shame and disgust
  • Your entire being is violated
On top of that for such traumatic experience to happen over and over again, where is our humanity? These men are sick and need help.
A Canadian South Asian woman is currently helping to coordinate a Canadian speaking tour for a woman by the name of Smita Singh. She runs an organization called the Mahima Care Home (A Canadian-Sponsored project of Partners International) which rehabilitates young girls who have been rescued from the child sex trade in Kolkatta, India. The organization provides the girls with a loving home where they are given food, education, vocational training, legal aid, counselling and much more. She is here in Canada to share her work, raise funds for the home and learn from Canadians to better her work in Kolkatta.
She will be here in Toronto from May 7th to 10th.

What is the reality in South Asia?

Of the total number of slaves, more than 2 million are children exploited by the global sex trade — and nearly half of these children are in South Asia. Every day, about 200 girls aged 7 to 16 in India alone are forced into prostitution — and robbed of their innocence. Girls as young as 7 years old are forcibly marketed, abused, exploited and placed in environments within brothels where they sexually service up to 25 customers a day. Often, they are also trafficked for their organs (such as kidneys), as an added revenue stream for the brothel owners.

 
What does it take to create freedom?
This Thursday evening (May 10th), come hear in person the story of Smita Singh, a woman who has devoted her life to advancing care for rescued victims of the sex trade in India.
Through her work leading The Mahima Care Home, Smita walks with former female child sex slaves in the healing process, empowering their self-discovery as exceptional women.
