34 rescued in Nepal

Thirty-four girls and women were rescued at the border of Nepal.

Many of the survivors snuck off to the border after their trafficker offered them marriage or a job abroad. Little did they know these promises were false, merely baits to hook them from their home and to a life of trafficking.

One of the survivors was a six-year-old girl on the cusp of being sold abroad, not by an unknown trafficker but her aunt and uncle.
