It’s not unusual for a poor family in India to sell their daughters to brothels. Girls caught in the trap of forced prostitution will never be able to go back to a normal life. Children born in brothels become the next generation of sex slaves. Daughters of prostitutes will become prostitutes. And their sons will become pimps or eunuchs.
Eunuchs call themselves “third gender”, nether male, nor female. Boys born in brothels undergo mutilation surgery at a very young age. The surgery is performed undercover in brothels so seven out of ten boys die from infection and loss of blood. Those who survive join the eunuchs and start wearing women’s clothes. What do the eunuchs do? They beg, dance and sing. You can often see them performing at marriages and other parties. People think that the eunuchs have the power to curse and bless. That’s why eunuchs often get as much money as they demand.
Thank God our boys are rescued from this hell on earth. They go to school, help at home, study the Bible and worship Jesus. Many of them have already been baptized in water. We’ve bought a piece of land for the construction of the rescue center for boys. Help us build a home for the rescued boys – a home which they can really call their own. Join us in this miracle of changing lives by becoming our monthly partner today.
