Asha was living the painful life of a prostitute in Pune, India. After few years, she gave birth to a baby girl. She cared for her child for many years, but when her daughter turned eight years old, Asha’s living conditions made it impossible to care for her little girl anymore. To make matters worse, the local people had begun commenting on how pretty Asha’s daughter was and how should would make a very good prostitute. Asha also noticed signs of physical abuse on the little girl.
Asha was able to contact HCC and shared her difficulties with the staff. She gave the child to HCC and requested HCC to care for the little girl. HCC agreed to help find a better solution for the child’s future, so they took her out of the brothel and cared for her at the Convent of St. Mary in Pune. All expenses related to her care and education were covered by HCC, which provided relief for Asha.
