Mina*, a Nepali girl, around seventeen – eighteen years, was rescued by our investigation team and local crime police last Friday in a raid. A brothel keeper was also detained. The accused brothel keeper and Mina were both released the night of the raid. People from the red-light area produced a birth certificate saying she is twenty – three years old which we find highly suspicious. If we prove she is minor, then we have a chance to file a case and get her re-rescued.

Our social workers are now coordinating a home investigation for Mina with an NGO in Nepal to learn the sequences of events that led to Mina being trafficked and her age.

Pray with us as we seek to understand more about Mina and her background this week.
