Sana* was just nine years old when the Government Railway Police found her alone on a train in India.
Having been trained by our teams they knew just how much danger she was in so took her off the train and to our Child Help Desk on the station platform where we were able to help her. We soon found out that she had been living with her aunt and helping her with household work, but hated it and was often told off for making mistakes.
She had tried to escape and get back to her parents but got lost and didn’t know which train to get.
We were able to track down her family and reunite little Sana with them, following up with ongoing support and advice on how they can stay safer together as a family unit.
Help Railway Children reach and protect more children like Sana and reunite them with their families with a gift today.
