What a difference one woman can make..and I do not mean the woman who beat and abuses young girls.. I mean the woman who came to save them..

Thank you so much to the women who save these girls from these horrible human beings.
You will be rewarded one day. I am sure your earthly reward is saving each and every girl.
I hope these criminals all get their's one day. The prison time they get is not enough They should get life in prison or the death sentence for each girl they take.

Thank you for sharing this story. All the people in the world are watching this.

Indeed, a very important issue that doesn't have the coverage it should have to be honest.

There are countless of heartbreaking stories, little girls who have HIV and who won't live past 20 years old because the treatment is too expensive or because they're already too badly infected. Little girls forever traumatized because of mutliple rapes, on a daily basis. Little girls having been through many abortions (useless to talk about the conditions of the abortions) to then being sent back to work as soon as they can walk.

And so many others.

In any case, thank you for sharing this, Aliso.

Thanks for the post and bringing this important issue up again. Again and again, we should have more and more people know and think about these girls who're suffering from sexual abuses.

We really need to keep the world's eye on this issue--so much of it happens behind closed doors.

Thanks, Aliso. The men who pay for having sex/rape with children or adults, deserve be killed. They have not any right. They destroy the lives of innocents for only five minutes of pleasure. The world is a better place without them.

Poor Girl Geeta. I would like to be there and help her. These kind of "men" if you can call them that, are worse than trash!
GOD Bless Geeta and her Beloved Family and Keep them Under HIS Care Wings!
HAVE A VERY BLESSED SUNDAY EVERYONE!
Much Love,
B.D♥

In so many countries women are treated as less than a man,abused, and disrespected.This way of destructive thinking must end!Women are not here to serve a man!Women are to be respected and highly regarded because they are the LIFE-GIVERS.What man can create a life?This would be a very different world with women in charge!

We need more international awareness and action for these issues with women as sex slaves...
As humans we are turning back the clock and turning into animals...Then again on second thoughts, animals do not act this way now do they...What makes man/woman so base and ugly ??

"Women are to be respected and highly regarded because they are the LIFE-GIVERS.What man can create a life?This would be a very different world with women in charge! "

With all due respect, Aliso, and keep in mind that to my eyes, women are to be taken care of like gold, no man can give life directly, you're very right - but without a man, a woman cannot give life either. This shows how we should treat and see each other - as equals. Women go through much pain to give life, one of the (many) reasons why women should be treated well indeed.

But as much as I can understand how fed up you (you being women in general) must be, to be treated like dirt, let's not create a world where the victim becomes the abuser. Meaning, we could all do a lot of good side by side, as true equals :) And this is up to all of us to change.

Horrifying that people are ready to exploit their own family and subject them to this. If you can't trust your family at such a young age.
