Danger in the Slums
Every day 2000 people move to the Delhi area from the villages looking for work. In the slums they are vulnerable and afraid and have no relationships because they have left their family and community network. Their children are the most at risk of all! One little 4-year-old girl was left alone all day while her parents were out looking for jobs. A 19-year-old man came into their shelter and tried to molest her, but she screamed and screamed until neighbors rushed in to rescue her. The man was turned over to the police, and the child was unharmed. She was immediately enrolled in a Cry of India school where she is safe every day and getting an education in a loving atmosphere. She is thriving and gaining confidence in this protected environment. The school also provides a network of caring friends for her parents. They are so appreciative that their daughter is safe and being taken care of. Thank you to the Cry of India sponsors who are giving hope to children like this and their parents!
