A desperate Mallika Sherawat has reached out to the Indian foreign minister Sushma Swaraj for help. She has reached out to Swaraj, urging her to help in facilitation of an Indian visa for a co-founder of the NGO Free-A-Girl. Mallika has made the request for Evelien Holsken, co-founder of the NGO, as her visa application has been repeatedly rejected.
The actress works closely with Free-A-Girl India, which fights against human trafficking and commercial sexual exploitation of children in India. "Ma'am Sushma Swaraj, co-founder of Dutch NGO Free-A-Girl has been repeatedly denied visa to India. This NGO is doing superb work for trafficked children and women. Please help!" Mallika tweeted on Monday.
Here's the tweet:
The NGO focuses on creating awareness about the problem of child prostitution and the impunity of offenders of child prostitution, and is mobilising support of the local community to fight against this crime. Mallika is the brand ambassador of "School for Justice", a unique programme by Free-A-Girl which helps girls who have been rescued from brothels by providing them with education, training and support in order to help them become lawyers and work within the judicial system.
Now, that’s a sweet request isn’t it? We hope Indian foreign minister Sushma Swaraj acts on it.
