Meet Prarthana

Prarthana (22 years old) ran away from her home and came to Kathmandu due to difficulties she faced as a Christian. Locals brought her to a church, which contacted the safe house (Nov 28). Looking at her condition and being aware of the risks she would face alone in this vast city, they have brought her in for now. She is very devoted to God and spends most of her time reading the Bible and praying. In the upcoming days, they will get to know her better to determine how they can best guide and help her. The safe house is trying to contact her family, as well as exploring the possibility of placement with another organization that specifically ministers to those with mental health and other psychological issues. Please remember Prarthana ("prayer" in Nepali) in your prayers!
