When I was growing up, my mom always told my sister and me that the only thing she wanted for Mother’s Day was for us to get along.
As two little girls prone to bickering, this was hard for us.
But now that we’re adults and good friends, we often tease our mom that “getting along” is all we’re getting her for Mother’s Day.
Sometimes the things moms want most are the hardest things to give them.
That’s certainly true for many of the women trapped in the sex trafficking industry in India. These women are abducted or misled and end up living as slaves, forced into selling their bodies, and in the process, many of them become mothers.
But they want a better life for their daughters.
“It’s too late for me… but please, save my child,” a desperate woman told some of our workers in New Dehli.
Today, we have the opportunity to answer the cry of these women’s hearts. This month, Faces of Eurasia is partnering with a residential home in India that provides a safe place for these women’s children to live, grow, and receive and education. You can read all about the good work the residential home is doing over on the Faces of Eurasia site.
Also, I’d like to challenge you to give to this important, live-giving cause.
Are you giving a gift to a mom in your life this year? Your own mom, or wife, or a friend? Whatever your budget is for her, would you consider giving that same amount to help a mom in India? The money you give today could have an eternal impact on her child’s life.
You can give securely to support the work of the residential center right here.
Thanks for your generosity, and thanks, as always, for being a part of this community. We couldn’t do this without you.
