WHAT IS NIGHTCARE?
NightCare works a lot like a daycare but in the evening or overnight when babies and toddlers are most susceptible to the dangers of the sex industry. We provide a safe place away from the abuse, neglect, and exploitation. Babies and toddlers come to NightCare- are given clean clothes, a bath, a nutritious meal, a lesson, and most importantly- a safe place to sleep.
WHY IS IT NEEDED?
When you listen to the stories of babies and toddlers growing up in the sex industry- it is horrifying. While there are services that help sex workers- we have not seen any other organization that helps their babies and toddlers.
We have heard the horrible alternatives of babies who don’t have NightCare: a baby who was abducted on the street while his mother worked, a baby who was severely abused by her mother’s client, a toddler who was forced to sell condoms to her mother’s clients, babies chained to beds while their mothers work on the same bed. Sadly, these heartbreaking stories are common in the Southeast Asian sex industry. Abuse is common place.
What does NightCare do?
1. It prevents further abuse and exploitation by taking these babies and toddlers out of the horrible situation when they are most likely to face abuse.
2. It heals from abuse and traumas already experienced by providing consistent and therapeutic caregiving.
3. It provides an environment of love, health, and joy through healthy meals, a fun place to play, and loving nannies.4. It prepares for the future by giving them tools to protect themselves and working with next step organizations.
