Rescue Pink presents Saving India's Daughters
A special community event and presentation will happen to benefit Rescue Pink, a Houston-based charity to rescue young girls in India. Sherry Naron, Founder of Rescue Pink, will share her personal story of how she was inspired to create this organization to help save babies at risk of infanticide in India.
It is estimated that in India alone, 50 million girls are missing due to infanticide, neglect or trafficking. Because of the extreme poverty in India and because a young bride’s family is obligated to pay a dowry in order to be married, girls are considered a burden on the family. They are frequently killed immediately following birth, or lost to severe neglect throughout their childhood, or, once a little older, sold into slavery.
Her presentation will share the story of how Rescue Pink is changing this path, one girl at a time, and giving hope to mothers and families.
