After Twenty Years, Finally Free

"It feels great to be free!"
After Twenty Years, Finally Free

“On the day of rescue…I felt relieved, overjoyed and determined,” she says. “It was too emotional for me to describe in words.

For the first time, Chithra can now live on her own terms. She travels where she wants, cooks whatever she wants, and spends time with her family in peace. She’s excited to raise her son, Raja, with the experiences and education she never had, and dreams of him becoming the first doctor in the family—a whole new possibility now that they are free.

It feels great to be free!”
