FRIENDS OF TOUCHING ASIA/OUT OF ASHES
More women and girls are being rescued through the ministry of Lighthouse Foundation Nepal. Below is a photo of a mother and her daughter. This mother and her daughter was rescued a couple of weeks ago from Mumbai. She has been in the brothel for twenty-two years. Her name is Soni. Both she and her daughter are two of the thousands that endure the same torment and abuse year after year. The great majority of chidren under Lighthouse Foundation’s care have however come to get education and been prevented from being sexually abused and trafficked.
Japanese friends visiting Nepal
April was an intense month as a team from our partner Bethany Kindergarten from Japan visited the work in Nepal. They have been involved in the work from the very beginning when they helped us when we raised funds to start the first Badi Girls Hostel. Apart from visiting the hostels and the CCS school, Miriam Baby Centre, etc. they also visited earthquake areas and areas like Chepang and Gorka. They returned back home to Japan with a much greater understanding of the poverty, the difficulties and the culture of sexual abuse, but also with a great appreciation and thankfulness to the work of Lighthouse Foundation. In the midst of all the darkness and difficulties miracles are taking place – women and girls are being rescued and education and restoration is ongoing. The growth is obvious and the transformation is tangible.
