Helping a Runaway Sex Slave

Operation Blessing provides three new wells to a Bombay Teen Challenge center where Shanu, a former sex slave, resides. Read Transcript


SHANU LIVES IN MUMBAI,

INDIA.

WHEN SHE WAS 8 YEARS OLD,

SHE WAS FORCED INTO

PROSTITUTION.

THEY ROBBED ME OF MY

DIGNITY.

I FELT LIKE MY HEART TURNED

TO STONE.

I WAS HELPLESS.

Terry: THEN WHEN SHANU

WAS 16 YEARS OLD, AN

ORGANIZATION CALLED BOMBAY

TEEN CHALLENGE RESCUED HER

FROM THE STREETS.

THEY PROVIDED HER WITH A

SAFE PLACE TO STAY.

I LEARNED ABOUT JESUS

HERE.

SHE RENEWED MY LIFE.

Terry: BUT THIS SAFE

HOUSE HAD A MAJOR PROBLEM:

A SEVERE WATER SHORTAGE.

THEY USED TO BRING WATER

DOWN.

WE WOULD FILL OUR BUCKETS,

CARRY THEM TO OUR ROOMS, AND

STORE THE WATER IN OUR

ROOMS.

BUT SOMETIMES THE WATER

TRUCK WOULD NOT COME.

Terry: WITHOUT ENOUGH

WATER, THE HOME WOULD BE

FORCED TO SHUT DOWN.

SO "OPERATION BLESSING" CAME

IN AND DUG THREE WELLS.

NOW THERE IS ENOUGH WATER

FOR THE 275 CHILDREN WHO

LIVE HERE.

NOW WE GET PLENTY OF

WATER FROM THE WELLS.

WE DON'T HAVE TO CARRY OUR

BUCKETS ANYMORE.

I CAN BRING WATER TO MY ROOM

ANY TIME.

I'M SO HAPPY FOR THAT.

THANK YOU, "OPERATION

BLESSING."

WHEN WE WERE IN NEED, YOU

PEOPLE CAME AND HELPED US.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.
