Reni was rescued by our investigation team and local police authorities on July 1st in a raid involving the rescue of four young women. She was medically found to be 15 years, however her parents challenged this at court by producing a birth certificate that stated that she is 19-20 years old. The court ordered her release to her mother Mirabai on July 31st.

Our staff went to her village last week. Her mother was there but Reni was not. Her mother confirmed that she did not come home with her and is still in the brothel. However, her mother showed a Ration Card ( valid I.D proof) showing Reni born in 2000. She would be not more than 14 this year.

Pray for Reni’s safety and our team as they challenge this information at court.
