THANK YOU FOR GIVING!!! PLEASE SHARE THIS OPPORTUNITY WITH YOUR FRIENDS!!!
WE ARE CURRENTLY BUILDING HOUSING FOR GRANDMAS AND YOUNG GIRLS ABANDONED AFTER THE QUAKE. WE DESIRE TO BUILD SEVERAL "PERMANENT" EARTHQUAKE RESISTANT HOUSES OUTSIDE OF MAJOR CITIES AS MANY ARE CURRENTLY LIVING ON THE STREETS WHERE THEY ARE VICTIMS OF RAPE AND OTHER FORMS OF ABUSE. IT IS VERY DANGEROUS. YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN A FEW LIVES!
DUE TO THE RECENT NEPAL EARTHQUAKES THE CRISIS HAS ESCALATED! Housing is desperately needed for young Himalayan Mt. girls who are without parents due to earthquake, accidents, murders, severe poverty and illnesses.
FOLLOWING the EARTHQUAKE, UNICEF estimates 1.7 million children are in URGENT NEED of shelter and blankets, food and water. Many children are exposed to the elements without covers, just the clothes on their backs. Only $75 provides TEMPORARY SHELTER AND BLANKETS FOR A FAMILY OF FOUR.
For several years BNI Intl has been working in various areas of the Himalayas to assist in these crisis situations. Progress is slow as governments change laws constantly requiring us to change our strategies to try to meet their requirements in assisting girls to safety.
Challenging the cultural mindsets and trying to comply with regulations makes it very difficult. We are now required to have a permanent home for them rather than a rental. We are needing to do several fundraisers to meet these regulations.
Our newspaper headlines scream at us the urgency of this matter. The headlines read like a horror movie...Jan. 6, "Perpetrator Shot Father of Gang Raped Minor", April 7, "Victim of Rape Flees After Death Threats" , April 11, "Ten Year Old Gang Raped, Killed in.....,"Sept, 11, "Teen Rape Victim Cries for Justice", Sept. 22, "Six Year Old Raped", Nov.9, "Eight Year Old Raped and Killed" , Nov.12, "Man Remanded in Custody for Raping 12 Year old Girl". These are just a few incidents as there are many more reported and unreported, as victims and families fear coming forward..
Notice only one person was arrested and taken into custody. Some Himalayan Mt countries have laws preventing filing any rape complaints after 30 days. So its customary for police to ignore complaints and force the victim to wait 30 days when no official complaint can be legally filed.
Recently in India, rapists were sentenced to death by hanging because they also murdered their victims. This was the first time a judge made such a decision as this involving rape. A prominent goverment leader questioned it saying, "Should rapists be sentenced to death? They are boys who make mistakes." In that case the "boys" were 19, 21 and 28 years of age.
Please help us to build the homes as we need safe places for orphan girls to live. Several children's homes now are buying and selling children. Why? Who knows? Are they are using them in child porn?
Help us be a voice for those who do not have a voice!
Thank you so very much for caring! Your action can save a life for some and for others a lifetime in an Indian brothel.
