INDIAN RESCUE MISSION
In our highly globalised and materialistic world, thousands of children are forced to live in inhumane existence. While many people live in the lap of luxury, there are those for whom even a basic meal happens to be luxury. A city like ours is no stranger to such a divide. A quick glance into the lives of these children will reveal that they have lost everything, including the care of their parents.
A fast growing city is also faced with the reality of crimes against women, more so crimes against minors. Everyday hundreds of thousands of minor girls are trafficked and sold and then forced into prostitution. Human trafficking is modern day slavery, rampant in many parts of the world; something which even the United Nations recognises as a crime and fights against.
While there are those who have realised that this evil has to be eradicated from its very roots, a lot still needs to be done. Enter the India Rescue Mission, an organisation which was started in 2009 and has rescued minor girls who have been sold and forced into prostitution. The organisation provides them with rehabilitation where all facilities like educational, health, medical and all forms of support are available.
This mission is a humane face in a ruthless and cruel as it strives to enrich those who have been rescued by imparting them with skills that will enable them to eventually break free from poverty, ignorance and every form of enslavement.
The latest rescue by this organisation was when the NGO rescued a 12-year-old girl who was being sold by her impoverished mother to a depraved person looking to take away the girl’s virginity.
The India Rescue Mission’s fight is against the mentality which looks at children, more so girls as objects rather than individuals. Their mission is one which recognises that every child has seeds of greatness deposited inside them by their Creator, and chooses to help them realise their dreams in a highly paced world.
