Update on Child Sex Trafficking Movie
Write to me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Shalom To My Dear Faithful Friends:
“Where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them.” Matt. 18:20
“We are losing our girls and women, the strength of Nepal. Child sex trafficking in Nepal is a crime against humanity. There is a blockage of justice!” Advocate D.Tripathi, Supreme Court, Kathmandu Nepal.
“I have been in villages where fathers sold their daughters for big screen TVs. My heart burns with the need to supply safe houses.” Meridel Rawlings
Never in my wildest dreams could I as a youth, have believed I could be set free from the suffering, humility and shame of child sexual abuse! I have been given the keys to His Kingdom found in Matthew 16:16-18. His ways are so much higher than ours. Because of the new life God created in me; I am able to reach into devastated lives and bring healing. Please pray for the on going welfare of the brave individuals in Nepal who stood with us in the creation of our latest film, YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE. CAN = Change Action Nepal is exposing the world of sex trafficking through the survivors. This wickedness spreads because good people do nothing! The educated Western nations are culpable!
What we MUST accomplish now!
I hope your only question is: “What can I do to help?” For everyone can do something! Our Nepali team headed up by Indira share their favor with us. We will meet and premiere this film to government leaders soon. The plan is to invite them to a private showing of the film in Kathmandu.Through your hearts and hands, the LORD provided the funds to create this film. Thank you to each and every one who gave to make it happen. This is your film and we will see that each donor gets their own private copy. I am believing to take $10,000. with us back to our Nepali team for the building of two earthquake “safe homes.” There is no going back, we are working to bring change to a nation. We are expanding! Today, trafficked Nepali girls in brothels in Calcutta are pleading for us to help them return home to Nepal. The work of rehabilitation is enormous; we must go forward. We have become a “safe place”. The doors are wide open. Please help us!
World Premiere in Nepal
We look forward to returning to Nepal to host the premiere of this amazing film especially for government leaders, other Nepalis in leadership roles and church leaders. God had given us a little strength and in HIS power and courage we proceed. Yes, we are weak, it is a despised field of endeavour, a threat to the wicked heart of darkness. We cannot go forward without your help. May God amaze us with His ways!
Quotes from our film: C.A.N. = You Can Make a Difference
“Some Nepali villages have no girls at all; 67% of minors 11 to 14 years are trafficked by their own families and countrymen. First, all are brutalised in Nepal and shipped to brothels in India or into the wealthy Muslim nations. Their young wills bend to the inhuman treatment of cuttings with razors (including the genitals), salt is put on the wounds. They can also be bitten all over their bodies to “break” them. AIDS is rampant.” Jan Brown, Producer of “Sold” a Hollywood film expose’ on child trafficking.
“Puberty is the age when the young are trafficked, physically and mentally brutalised, and kept under debt bondage. With no legal documentation, the flower of Nepal is sold. Sex tourism in Nepal, gives them jobs as waitresses and dancers in clubs known as ‘Cabin Restaurants’ (a cover for brothels) Each girl is given a number, and the client chooses a number representing one of the girls, which they have for their dessert after dinner. Yes it is gross. 45,000 to 50,000 young girls work in sex tourism in Nepal. Out of the 1,500 sex workers in the Tramel city- centre of Kathmandu, 700 are known to be infected with the HIV virus.They earn $15.00 to $30.00 month.” Michael Brown, Film Director of “Sold” on Sex Trafficking
“I was responsible to provide for my mother and siblings and I went to Kathmandu and got work in a Cabin Restaurant. The clients touched us everywhere, on our breasts and even our private parts. I was afraid to go to the bathroom. I am thankful to Indira Didi and CAN -Change Action Nepal for getting me out of it and helping me learn to be a tailor. ID Concealed
“Since 2010, sex trafficking has increased 61% after the government passed the “Mobility Rights Law” permitting women to travel from their villages without parental consent. Many young people are illiterate, and traffickers have taken full advantage of this law for their own purposes. They send the desperate, voiceless, and helpless girls out of Nepal, trafficked as “sex slaves’” – 80% of the victims become schizophrenic. IF returned to Nepal, it is only at night when no one sees them. Suicide rates are high.The public is unaware of this huge daily exploitation.” Aasha – Nepali Activist for Trafficked young women
“I was trafficked to a wealthy family in Saudi Arabia. They paid my trafficker US $2,000. Girls become slaves for life. BUT I fought to get back.” Durga Tamang, a Trafficked Nepali girl now free.
“Because our government has failed to regulate the system we see this modern day slavery. There must be zero tolerance. My work is to educate these girls. 80% of girls in school are safe. We build toilets for the girls in the schools. Otherwise they are afraid to go to school. Imagine!” Former “Miss Nepal”
“In my village the girls were not allowed to go to school. One day I was kidnapped, drugged and transported for days, I cried and there was no one to help. I was sold to a brothel in India as a young girl. I resisted but was tortured. Eventually I was rescued by police because I was a child. But Nepal refused to take us back. We had no papers, no I.D. they called us; “sullied AIDS garbage”. But later 15 other women and I founded an N.G.O. to help others like us back in Nepal. Then the U.S. Sec of State acknowledged our work by giving me the prize for “Ending Slavery Award.” I was greatly encouraged! Charimaya Tamang
Help us to continue supporting Nepalis, who are educating the young rescued sex slaves at a grassroots level first. We help them to inspire and empower the abused. Now we Rawlings, along with our exceptional Nepali workers are going to the leaders of Nepal. C.A.N. was the name given to our son film maker David Rawlings, during his extensive film work in Nepal. We have all worked on this film at one time or another over the last three years with your help. Daniel has a particular love for the street children of Kathmandu.
