Site visit with a swedish guest

Its been a couple of weeks since I visited the girls in the shelter. This time I decided to bring rice, daal, maida, spices, detergent bars, shower cream, and hair oil. I also brought a swedish friend, Dan, from our community. We drank tea, and the girls proudly showed him around in the shelter, and we also greeted a mom with a 3 month old baby. The mom, being a former victim of sex trafficking, is now being rehabilitated in the shelter. Thanks to organisations such as Vidyaranya, she and her baby is doing relatively ok. Dan donated some clothes and shoes, which will help them in the shelter, and if not there the other projects or people in the sorrounding community will benefit from this.

After the tour inside the shelter, we continued to the cleaning facilities, and the girls showed us a broken door. As it turned out, Dan is a handy man, and he agreed to fix one the "bathroom doors". It was a bit tricky though to take the measurements for the door cause there was no electronic lightning out there, since one former victim had committed suicide (using the lightning). As I have mentioned here earlier, one door is broken so the neighbors can have a peek in on the girls when they perform their essential needs.

We also discussed the previous event, at Mövenpick Hotel, and the girls seemed really pleased with it. I am really looking forward to the next event, and I hope that more caring people, such as Dan, take interest in helping victims such as these girls and women. Even the simplest things can really make a huge difference in someones life!
