Members of the Lowson Memorial Church are holding an Asian evening on Saturday to raise funds for the Seema’s Children’s Home Project.

It will include Asian music and an Asian meal and will begin at 7.30 p.m.

This is the latest event to raise funds to build a 40-bed refuge for young children in the Pune area in India.

Pam Cairns, a well-respected author and evangelist against human trafficking, with her husband Alan, members of the Lowson, brought the story of how last year a group of local women was visiting a charity which works with sex workers in Pune’s red light district. They discovered young girls were being brought from all over the continent under various pretences to be enslaved in the sex industry. They found around a dozen offspring of these girls being protected in a small office by a charity worker who had no place to keep them and no finance to change the situation to provide for them adequately.

The group immediately offered to help by procuring a piece of land and they are now working hard to raise funding for the building. Pam will give an update on the progress of the campaign.

Tickets, £10 each, can be obtained from the church office (Tel. 460576) on Friday morning). Donations are also welcome.
