About this Fundraiser

Word Made Flesh began taking teams to Kolkata in 1994 and established a continuous presence there in 1997. Serving alongside the Missionaries of Charity led to developing friendships with women trapped in one of the largest red-light districts in the world.

The WMF Kolkata community partners with local organizations to provide economic opportunity and holistic restoration for women who are vulnerable to sex trafficking and to women who are exiting the commercial sex trade (through self-rescue) so that they can find freedom and a new life.

Mission Statement

WMF Kolkata has been called to serve among those who have been sexually exploited. We work to see the freedom and restoration of Kolkata’s red-light areas through a dignifying relationship with persons affected by the sex trade.
