Muskan y Gulabshah
It´s me again! I´m back in India and working hard for the future of our little angels. Sometimes I forget how much we achieved already in the last years but that doesn´t let me rest a bit. There is still a lot of work ahead of us.
A couple of days ago I was looking at the picture of Muskan and Gulabshah and I was surprised about how much time has passed bye. For the past eight years these beautiful girls have been living with us! They where the first ones to arrive, only three years old and close to death. Their story is hard, both were born at a sad train station platform without any medical attention. I have no idea how, but they survived begging and eating food they found in the garbage. Muskan´s mother repeatedly tried to bring her back to the street so she could beg for money and have her submit to a life of prostitution. It´s not easy to explain to a mother who is always drunk and drugged doing her business as a prostitute that it´s not such a good profession for her daughter. She will have difficulties to understand! Two years ago I put my food down with her mother and since then she never came back to visit. Better for Muskan. That way she feels more protected.
Gulapshah´s mother died one year ago. shortly before she died I visited her at the train station. She was pregnant again and didn´t look well at all. Since she was very skinny and fragil I thought: “I have no idea if she will survive this” . I wasn´t wrong, the father of the baby hit her very bad so she lost the baby. She got very ill with an internal infection which caused her death.
When I was in Spain the stepfather came in order to take Gulapshah with him for a couple of days. He didn´t bring her back and from afar I had the impression she wasn´t well at all. So I moved everything in order to get her back. It wasn´t easy but at the end I accomplished what I wanted.
When I came back to India the girl was weird and absent. Right away I knew she had experienced difficult circumstances. By far nothing adequate for such a young girl, so it was more then urgent to have her back with us.
Normally I don´t like to tell you guys these kind of stories because I want to tell you nice stories that make you happy. I prefer the beautiful things in this life but these stories are also part of our project and I think it´s important that you know the full reality of everything that´s happening. Sometimes I feel depressed because I have one of these stories in my head, but then I realise that this is the reason we do this!
We have to continue fighting for these girls and boys and in order for them to get out of these very difficult situations, we have to give them a helping hand. They deserve a worthy future exactly like our little angels here in Europe and the rest of the world.
