Fifteen young girls, many underage were rescued on Purim evening in Israel. Each one had too much to drink or was given some kind of drug that made them incoherent. Our staff and volunteers paroled the streets of downtown Jerusalem from 11 pm at night to 6 am in the morning. Many girls were literally picked up off the streets and either taken home or to a safe house to ‘sleep it off’.
One 15 year old girl who was picked up had been living on the street for 1 week! We are in the process of trying to help her get her life back together.
