37 rescued at the border – including a four-year-old girl

Thirty-seven people were rescued from human trafficking at the border of Nepal, including a four-year-old girl who was kidnapped by her uncle.

Before the child went missing, she lived with her older sisters at home while her parents worked abroad. Her uncle began visiting regularly, bringing her gifts. She grew attached and would do anything he said.

One day, he visited and disappeared with the child.

Our rescue agents spotted them traveling through the border and asked a line of questions. Our team soon became suspicious of them after their stories didn’t match. Investigators contacted her parents, who informed us that the child had gone missing and everyone in her community was looking for her.

She was cared for in our temporary home until her parents could arrange for her to return home safely.
