Meet Arshad and Sahil
Arshad*, aged nine, and Sahil*, aged six, were playing in the market one day and following their father’s motorised cart.
Enjoying their game they ran after him and didn’t realise how far they had gone until they lost sight of his vehicle.
The little boys realised they were completely lost and alone.
Terrified they headed into the station – a hectic environment and prime hunting ground for those looking to exploit vulnerable children. Luckily the brothers saw our help desk straight away. They were hysterical and our teams took time to comfort them, give them a drink and snack and settle them enough that they could share their father’s name and details. We quickly tracked him down and he collected his sons who were so happy to be reunited with their dad.Find out more about our work in India >
