You may have heard me mention this term, “nightcare” and perhaps you’re curious to know what this is and why is it important. Because of my work with Saving Moses I came across a need for infants and toddlers that completely blew me away. I’ve discovered that it is very common for prostitutes and sex workers to bring their infants and toddlers to work with them or leave them abandoned at home because they have no other options available to them. I’ve even seen a toddler chained to his mom’s bed & heard that these toddlers and infants are even drugged or sedated during the time that mom is working so they won’t interrupt the income that their mom is earning. When I heard of this, I was totally overwhelmed and began to think of possible ways that Saving Moses could help, specifically with these infants & toddlers because they are the sole focus for the mission and vision of Saving Moses. I felt like God dropped a plan into my heart for the idea of “nightcare” – a safe place with nurture, love and support for infants and toddlers of sex workers to stay while their mom works (kind of like the US equivalent of “daycare”, but just at night).
So with this in mind, over the last year, we’ve been working diligently to implement “nightcare” and I’m elated to announce that we will be opening our first nightcare shelter next week! To get a brief perspective on this need, please check out this video: nightcare
