Human TraffickingHelp us rescue Nepali boys and girls from the horrors of domestic and sexual slavery.
GIVE JUSTICE TO THE POOR AND THE NEEDY.
He was her knight in shining armor. It all seemed too good to be true.
Although they loved her immensely, Bimala’s family struggled to provide for her and her siblings. At just 17 years of age, Bimala was given away to a man full of promises.
Rarely are human trafficking victims forcibly kidnapped. Most victims are deceived by empty promises of a better life.
Bimala’s “knight” whisked her away to a distant city to live with him. But what she discovered there made her sick.
The man was married… and had a child.
Bimala was nothing more than a live-in mistress. The man’s wife hated Bimala and physically abused her.
To escape the tiresome fights, the man told Bimala he’d found a job for her in India.
Up to 7,000 Nepali girls are trafficked to India alone each year and are forced into domestic slavery or used as sex slaves. Almost all of them are promised “good paying jobs.”
Heartbroken, lonely, and scared, Bimala went with the man. They arrived to the border town and were about to cross into India.
That’s when our rescue team saw them.
Our team is trained to spot suspicious activity like young girls crossing into India alone, or, in this case, a young girl crossing into India with two men.
The team apprehended them and upon questioning the men found out their plan to sell Bimala in India.
Bimala was rescued from slavery just minutes before crossing the border.
The rescue team brought her to WMOO’s transit home on the border to rest and recuperate from her trauma.
WMOO volunteers and staff counseled Bimala through the emotional turmoil and educated her on how to defend herself from human trafficking.
When we located Bimala’s family, they were desperately searching for her. They came as soon as they could to the border town and brought Bimala safely home.

Every week, Nepalese girls are seduced and sold into the slave market. Many are sent to India, others to Europe, still others to the Middle East. Only those saved by rescue teams watching the borders make it back to their families.
