Siblings Rescued from Slavery!
On February 16th, Guria rescued four siblings from slavery in a brick kiln in Jaunpur district of Uttar Pradesh state. The four bonded laborers were all siblings—three sisters and their brother, and one of the sisters was only 5 years old.
Of the many enslaved people Guria has rescued in the past 35 days, we have found that most of them are not actually from Uttar Pradesh state, where the brick kilns were located. Most of the rescued victims have been from neighboring states.
