In November 2019, Punima was rescued out of labor slavery from a small roadside cafe in Asia. She was abused regularly by the owners and forced to work long demanding days without any kind of payment. She was offered very little food but was still expected to complete exhausting tasks around the establishment. When our team became informed Punima was being exploited, the team rescued her from the cafe and brought her into a new life of freedom. She now lives in a safe home with a family who loves her. Here, she receives proper food, medical care and an education. When Punima grows up, she dreams of becoming a teacher.
