On Christmas Day, Global Family celebrated in many different ways including a Christmas dinner enjoyed by girls in our Delhi shelter. After dinner, the girls presented a skit they created on the topic of child labor and trafficking. There was not a dry eye in the room. What some of these daughters have been through is too difficult to describe, but the fact that they are being cared for and restored with their families is a miracle and a gift.
This article ( http://www.npr.org/blogs/thetwo-way/2012/12/22/167879878/unprecedented-public-rage-over-gang-rape-in-india) reminds us of the importance of prevention and care for girls in a city that has recently been shaken with a highly publicized gang rape. One of the youngest girls in our shelter right now was gang raped by 4 adolescent boys. Protecting daughters has to be a priority.
Thank you for protecting daughters and making 2012 an incredible year. We are very excited for the year ahead!
