NASHVILLE, Tenn., May 29 /Christian Newswire/ -- FREE FOR LIFE MINISTRIES, INC. of NashvilleTennessee is pleased to sponsor Suman Sapkota, Program Coordinator of Peace Rehabilitation Center, during his stay in the United States.
Shanta Sapkota, founder of PeaceRehabilitationCenter, was born in the town of Gorkha, Nepal. Her father brokered an arranged marriage for her at the age of twelve, in order to get her out of the house. She was neglected in her new household and suffered from much physical and mental affliction. Constantly in search of peace and love, she felt like an orphan. When in her Bible she read, "I will not leave you as orphans, I will come to you" (John ), she became aware of God's promise for her and committed her life to serving Him.
The Sapkota family runs a safe house for victims of human sexual trafficking in Kathmandu, Nepal. They have been rescuing and restoring young victims since 1988. They can house up to 100 girls, and have extensive programs in place aimed to combat trafficking of victims from Nepal into India.
Free For Life Ministries, Inc. is a faith based 501(c)3 non-profit organization that helps raise funds to support safe houses around the world that have a proven track record in the fight against global human sexual trafficking. According to Colette Bercu, founder of Free For Life Ministries, Inc. the PeaceRehabilitationCenter receives its highest recommendation for their commitments in this area. "This family has devoted the past 20 years of their life to rescue and restore these victims, and I consider the Sapkota family to be true heroes in every sense of the word" says Bercu.
Mr. Sapkota will be in the U.S. until July 2, 2007 and is available for speaking engagements on radio, television, print media, and at various churches and civic organizations. He has a compelling story to tell about the sexual trafficking of young girls in Nepal, the battle with HIV in these individuals, and the programs that the PeaceRehabilitationCenter has developed to deal with the issues specific to human sexual trafficking in this part of the world.
