Bablu's Story

Enjoy this brief glimpse into a life changed: a sweet little clip of baby Bablu figuring out if he likes cake, his adorable sister singing “Happy Birthday " to him, and an entire family celebrating love, freedom and joy.

Before he was born, his mum, dad and sister went to work at a wood-cutting facility to try to pay off a debt with their daily wages. But what they thought was a good job quickly turned into a life of abuse. A cruel man, they called The Beast, gained complete control over every aspect of their lives.

Their conditions were horrific, and the abuse they suffered was overwhelming. It became clear that their future would be once of slavery if they didn’t find a way out.

Only a few days before Bablu was born, IJM went to investigate the facility alongside local authorities. Despite threats, Bablu’s mum harnessed all of her courage and spoke boldly, telling the authorities everything about the abuse and torment they had experienced. Because of her courage and the partnership of people like you, IJM intervened in his family's life and got to witness not only their rescue but Bablu being born into freedom!

Enjoy this brief glimpse into a life changed: a sweet little clip of baby Bablu figuring out if he likes cake, his adorable sister singing “Happy Birthday " to him, and an entire family celebrating love, freedom and joy.
