Yeah, with success stories like the following from the
Team Mates For Kids site...
it makes you want to do more... it's amazing all that's
been done for the kids already, in such a short time! :)


Please read how grant recipients from the Teammates for Kids Foundation are impacting the lives of children in need.

International Justice Mission
Jyoti was 14 when she set off for her home village with the money she had saved while working as a domestic servant in a distant town. While returning home by train, she was befriended by four women. These women drugged her and had her transported to Bombay where she was sold into a brothel and locked away in a hidden room. Jyoti's story is too brutal to describe in graphic detail. By the time she was 17, she had been severely beaten many times, had suffered through three abortions and remained physically locked away to service the brothel's customers.

A team of skilled criminal investigators from the International Justice Mission (IJM) infiltrated the brothels in Bombay and located Jyoti and other girls held in forced prostitution. The investigators documented the girls' conditions with video surveillance equipment and then worked with a trusted police contact to raid the brothels and release the girls. Jyoti is now in a wonderful home of refuge operated by a Bombay church partner of the IJM. Here, Jyoti is receiving the spiritual, emotional, mental and physical care she desperately needs to overcome her horrific experience. Jyoti has expressed an interest in returning to Bombay one day as a witness to girls like her who fear there is no future after the abuse of forced prostitution.

In addition, the IJM and one of the girls released from forced prostitution were asked to testify before Congress about the work of the IJM, the ways girls can be rescued from forced prostitution and the needs in this area.

God's Love We Deliver
Christopher was only 6 years old in 1994 when he was referred to God's Love We Deliver (GLWD) by a local healthcare agency that recognized that he was literally wasting away from the effects of AIDS. He had previously been infected through his mother, and his guardian (his aunt) was unable to provide proper nutrition for him. We delivered lunch and dinner to him each weekday for 3 years, as well as providing both him and his aunt with extensive nutrition counseling. In addition, our Ombuds officer referred the family to additional food sources to supplement our life-sustaining meals. We're happy to report that Christopher was able to return to school, and is now a typical 12-year old. His doctor says that he is doing very well on his medications.


Wow!
