But after her rescue, Mallika’s parents struggled to provide fitting care for a child who had endured immense trauma. So, with their love and support, Mallika was brought to our local partner’s safe home for healing.
Even though Mallika was safe in our local partner’s care, adapting to her new life wasn’t easy. She didn’t know who she could trust—and everything was new. But with time and alongside a loving community, Mallika learned to trust again.
Six years later, our safe home leaders tell us that Mallika “has become a beautiful woman with a different personality.” She loves to cook and clean and help the leaders care for the children. Now in Grade 9, her dream is to continue her studies so she can help other children who have endured similar trauma.
