30 rescued at the border

Our team rescued 30 people at the border of Nepal. Among them was a 13-year-old girl who met her trafficker on Facebook.

The child and her new ‘friend’ – a 20-year-old male – began chatting on Facebook two months ago. After she told him about her family’s financial problems, he offered her a job in a neighboring country. He also declared his love for her and convinced her to run away without telling her parents.

When questioned at the border, they claimed to be brother and sister traveling to see her parents. Our staff became suspicious and soon uncovered the ruse.

She was counseled on human trafficking and reunited with her parents. Her trafficker was released after her parents declined to press charges.
