Cents of Relief is a wonderful organization which aims to help women and children who are trafficked or at risk of trafficking. I enjoy working with Cents of Relief as I know they are dedicated to the cause to help change lives and end trafficking. Cents of Relief is very open to suggestions from volunteers and this is what I love about the organization. They listen to what their volunteers think can make a change and help get these ideas implemented. I recently assisted them in proofing the hindi version of the Burn Comic's first edition. I have also participated in raising funds as well as awareness.

Cents of Relief is a great non profit organization that provides tremendous relief to woman who have been subjected to prostitution and trafficking. Assistance is available through prevention programs, healthcare and education. The growing numbers in human trafficking is appalling, thus, the programs offered by COR are vital. I have had the honor to assist COR by creating their new websites relaunch cards. The organization does a significant job in keeping the public informed through their website and other social media networks about critical information related to human trafficking. They provide individuals with the opportunity to make a difference through various outlets. Lack of education and proper healthcare is the downfall of vast populations in third world countries, and Cents of Relief does a great part in helping alleviate this critical issue.

I am so glad to have cross paths with Cents of Relief. Cents of Relief provides a communication channel that allows for such easy access of information and updates. From tackling social media, to arranging energetic fundraisers, they have done a wonderful job of reminding us of our social responsibilities while involving us hands on.

I came across Cents of Relief via a friend who knew Rina. Over the last few months, I have been following the cause and it warms my heart to see all of the progress the team is making on so many levels of relief. From assisting burn victims, to distributing safety comics and launching innovative fundraising programs- I feel this is a charity that I can relate to as someone with the youthful energy to make a difference. Helping Cents of Relief goes beyond just the piece of mind of helping charity, it helps you make a real impact.

Although I have been affiliated with COR since 2004, last summer, I collaborated with COR to create an educational comic book (about Burn safety) for kids in the red light areas of India as well as for kids right here in the US. Through the concerted effort of many people, the comic book was a wild success! I LOVE volunteering with COR and I plan to get even more involved with this organization in the very near future.

Through Cents of Relief, I have been working in Kalighat, Kolkata (Calcutta) at a center that provides health, education and vocational training for women and children in Kalighat (the oldest red light district in Kolkata). Cents of Relief provides funds and support that provide a tremendous amount of support and compassion for women in prostitution. Despite the large number of women and children in need in the area, there are very few resources to assist them or help them find a path out of sex work and extreme poverty. Cents of Relief's staff and volunteers (and the programs they run) truly provide necessary services where there are few or none.

It has been a pleasure to work with Rina and Anup. Cents of Relief has expanded it's scope to include healthcare to burn victims in South Asia. With Cents of Relief and Operation Smile backing, we were able to perform approximately 50 reconstructive operations on burn victims. Ultimately, it may be possible to extend this coverage to other developing nations. Lastly, preventative health measures, such as introducing a comic book to teach children about safety, has been implemented with great success. Cents of Relief has come very far in a short period of time.

I have been involved with Cents of Relief since 2003 when Anup and Rina started with small fundraisers to support their projects. I am aware of the organizations true dedication to improving the health and lives of women and children in the red-light areas of india. Most recently, Cents of Relief created a Burn Comic book to help teach children in India about burn prevention. This comic was distributed in Mumbai schools with great success! The story of Lalit playing with fireworks is such a great way to help children understand how to keep themselves safe!
