Meet Raju

Reuniting families makes us proud.

A local Pastor moonlighting as a broker trafficking children into orphanages coaxed 7 year-old Raju’s poverty-stricken family to admit their son into Asha Orphanage so they had one less mouth to feed. The family was only allowed to visit once during the seven years Raju was held at the orphanage.

Raju is now 14 years old and went home to his mum and dad and five siblings on 4 June 2018. We continue to support the family by assisting with education costs. His mother believes Raju’s 10 year-old brother looks older than him because he was starved for seven years in the orphanage and he is underdeveloped and malnourished. Raju is really enjoying school and loves being home with his family.
