THE CAUSE


RESCUE A CHILD

1.5 million children in Bangladesh are living on the street tonight. With your help, we can protect them, bring them to safety and save them.

The UN estimates that 150 million children are living on the street. This is perhaps a conservative estimate, as reporting and recording are complicated, and the actual figure is thought to be much higher. They are living in fear, without protection, food, or hope for their futures. They are at huge risk of exploitation, abuse, forced prostitution, trafficking, forced labour, and slavery.

In Bangladesh, over 50% of the population lives below the poverty line, leading to an increase in child abandonment and suffering. It is estimated that in Dhaka, more than 500,000 street children live on the street in the capital city. There are accounts of children getting caught up in gang disputes and violence, carrying weapons, and taking part in illegal activities.

Our work with street children began in 2014. We rescue street children and work to reunite them with their families where possible. If this is not possible due to long-standing feuds, or if the child will be in danger, or if there are no living family members, we refer them to permanent shelters offering safety and protection, alongside the ability to go to school.
