Night Care Shelters
Evening Care Centers are adjacent to the red-light district and are open during peak brothel business hours. These centers provide a way to get vulnerable children out of their mothers’ rooms while they service customers. Like a traditional day-care center, the Project Rescue Evening Care Centers offer nourishing food, help with studies, and a safe, caring environment where children can sleep and restore. The children also learn Bible stories that demonstrate God’s power to change lives.
HIV/Aids and Medical Clinics
It has been estimated that 60% of female prostituted women in Bombay’s red-light district are infected with STDs and AIDS. In response to this, we have established medical clinics that are open and free to any woman in the red light district needing medical care, treatment and counseling.
Red Light District Churches and Sunday Schools
The first simple step towards restoration for sexual slavery victims is our red light district church and sunday schools. Week after week, women and children join together to hear about the life changing power of Jesus Christ. Here, women still in sexual bondage discover prayer, and are given the hope and faith to take the first step in their journey toward personal freedom.
Detention Center Outreach
When women and children are trafficked into other countries they are without proper legal documentation. If found by authorities, victims are sent to a detention center to await deportation. Project Rescue leaders and staff minister to victims in the detention center and help give essential care. When possible, Project Rescue personnel negotiate a victim’s release into a Project Rescue aftercare home to provide spiritual, physical, and emotional care for transformation and new life.
