Seeing the Children on the Streets Broke My Heart

Alone at night. Vulnerable. Hungry. Afraid. Hundreds of thousands of children in South Asia live on the streets, away from the comfort and security of loving parents. In one large city in this region, 20 to 25 new children end up on the streets every day. Human traffickers are poised and ready to take them. Some children are snatched away in only 15 minutes to be sold into slavery and other heartbreaking situations.

“Seeing the children on the streets broke my heart,” said a contact in South Asia who works with street children. “For me, it is a great privilege God has given me to take care of these children.”

CAM is supporting this contact and others in Asia and Mexico who provide Christ-centered care for children who have been rescued. Caring believers provide food, safety, trauma counseling, and Bible-based teaching about the love of Jesus. Rescued children are educated and taught a vocation so they can eventually provide for themselves.

Rescuing Vulnerable Children

Countless children around the world end up on the streets when their parents abandon them or die. With no one to look after them, these helpless children are often kidnapped or tricked into being used for others’ profit and greed. To help these innocent ones, we are launching the Child Rescue program, which supports efforts in Mexico and South Asia to rescue children in these desperate situations.

When Juana in Mexico was faced with the death of her mother and rejection from her father, she and the three younger siblings in her care moved in with their older sister and her husband. In their new home, they were abused and forced to beg for money on the streets. If they did not bring in enough money in the evening, their brother-in-law would beat them. Because of the mistreatment they suffered, Juana and her siblings fled to the home of a lawyer their mother had known. The lawyer put them in touch with CAM contacts who brought them to a safe environment where they are now protected and loved. Juana thanks God every day that she and her siblings are in a secure place away from those who wish to harm them.
