The Rescue Foundation, a non-governmental organization founded to rescue young girls from brothels in and around Mumbai, India, houses over 50 rescued girls at a time. Most are under the age of 18 and some of them are Devadasis. Many of the girls suffer from some form of post-traumatic stress syndrome. One girl doesn't speak while another tried to commit suicide by setting herself on fire while still at a brothel. .
