Asian Aid operates an “Urgent Needs/Where Needed Most” fund which is used for special needs and operation of the organization. We have a team of Indian staff located in Bangalore India who check the 130 schools where Asian Aid sponsors children. This fund also is used to help operate our USA office, fulfill small special requests and emergency needs, and provide for any costs of running and marketing the organization. This fund needs regular support for the smooth operation of Asian Aid. We ask that you uplift Asian Aid in prayer and consider how you can help Asian Aid continue to give hope to children and communities through this fund.

Support of this fund will ensure that these children can live with the love of a new family and the have security of a home.
The Operation Child Rescue project covers anti-human trafficking programs in India and Nepal. The exploitation of children in the many types of trafficking (which includes child labor, prostitution, pornography, begging, mafia controlled begging and drug peddling, and organ transplants) is on a scale that is hard to comprehend. It is estimated that more than 1.2 million children in India are caught up in human trafficking as child prostitutes alone in India.

The Kollegal School for the Hearing and Speech Impaired in India has three urgent needs: the need for a new dormitory to accommodate up to one hundred boys, the need for the introduction of a new vocational course and the need for in-service teacher training in the latest methodologies for teaching special-needs children. This Improvement Project aims to address these needs by raising the necessary funds. More than one hundred children are taught sign language along with other school subjects, and older children are also taught basic vocational skills, such as tailoring at the school.
The Vizak Slum School is a school situated in the heart of one of the worst slums to children of local prostitutes and extremely poor, destitute families. It serves to up to 100 children, over 50% of which would never have the hope of any education. Other community programs it provides are education for the parents and food and clothing for the children.
The Women’s Health Program in Nepal aims to raise awareness, help prevent and cure the incidences of uterine prolapse (UP) among the rural, poor women of Central and Western districts of Nepal, with the view of improving their health and increasing their life expectancy. Women’s health is highly neglected in Nepal, one of the few countries in the world where a woman’s life expectancy is lower than a man’s, and uterine prolapse is a common health issue among women. Studies in Nepal indicate that some 600,000 women, or 40% of the female population, suffer from second and third-degree uterine prolapse. Several non-government and/or community-based organisations are helping to address this issue by focusing on offering operations to women to cure the condition. But research suggests that little is done in educating women on how to prevent uterine prolapse. This project aims to fill this gap by funding the development and implementation of an awareness and training campaign involving local people and other organisations.
