Once a vibrant and cheerful child, Pooja’s (name changed) world was shattered by the heinous act of rape. The trauma she endured at the hands of someone she trusted left her in a state of anguish and despair. The once playful girl now lay motionless on her bed, her innocence stolen, and her spirit broken.
Her mother, burdened with the weight of responsibility and the pain of witnessing her daughter’s suffering, searched desperately for justice. The family’s meagre income barely covered their basic needs, let alone the mounting medical expenses. In their darkest hour, the Kailash Satyarthi Children’s Foundation (KSCF) emerged as a ray of hope for the family.
KSCF left no stone unturned in providing legal aid and support to Pooja and her family. Our team worked tirelessly to ensure that the accused faced the consequences of his abhorrent actions. Our determination bore fruit when the court convicted him and sentenced him to life imprisonment.
But justice alone could not heal the wounds inflicted upon Pooja. KSCF recognized this and arranged for her specialized medical care. The organization’s unwavering dedication allowed her to gradually transition from a liquid diet to semi-solids, a small victory on the path to recovery.
Through our relentless efforts, we secured an interim compensation of Rs. 3,00,000 for Pooja, offering a glimmer of financial relief to the struggling family. However, we didn’t stop there. Our team continued to advocate for the final compensation, working tirelessly to expedite the process.
While Pooja still has a long road to recovery ahead, she is no longer alone in her battle. KSCF’s compassionate team continue to stand by her side, offering support and hope.
