As 2017 draws to an end, we at Women’s Rights Without Frontiers want to thank you for joining us in what we believe is the biggest human rights battle in the world.
Because of you, baby girls like “Ai Jia” have escaped the tyranny of China’s brutal son preference and are the pride and joy of their families. Now that’s joy to the world!
Ai Jia’s mother was pregnant three times before she discovered she was pregnant with Ai Jia. Her first child is a daughter. With her next two pregnancies, when she found out she was pregnant with girls, her in-laws pressured her to abort them. Her husband’s parents really wanted a grandson and could not accept a second granddaughter. This is the plight of many second daughters in China.
Then, Ai Jia’s mother found out that she was pregnant again, with a fourth girl. Her mother-in-law began to pressure Ai Jia’s mother again, insisting that she give this baby to a childless couple living 300 miles away from their remove village.
Ai Jia’s mother did not want to abort or abandon her daughter, but she not know what to do! Our undercover fieldworker arrived at her door just in time with a message of hope and the resources to back it up. She offered Ai Jia’s mother a monthly stipend for a year to help her keep Ai Jia.
Ai Jia’s mother had already had two sex-selective abortions. Because of our fieldworker’s emotional encouragement and your financial support, this distraught mother is joyfully raising her beloved daughter. She said that she is grateful that people from a faraway land have protected her and her daughter from mistreatment by their own family.
This season of giving, will you help us reach out a saving hand?
We have $5000 in matching funds, so you gift will be doubled!
We’re leading an international movement combating China’s anti-woman policies through public advocacy and real, life-saving interventions to help those most in need. We’ve saved hundreds of baby girls!
In 2018, we’re getting ready to take it to the next level – including saving girls in India — but we’ll need your help.
Please consider making a donation today of $100, $50, or even $10 to help us save lives and fight the lies. Thanks to our matching funds, that would turn into $200, $100, or $20!
There are only a few days left in 2017.
For little girls like Ai Jia, your gift can’t wait!
President, Women’s Rights Without Frontiers
