The Pink Foundation along with IndusTV hosted a Sufiana Night on February 6, 2021, to highlight the issues of female gendercide. The show was full of mesmerizing music by various artists such as Bhavin Shastri, Biba Singh, Sarika Kansara, Rahul Sharma, and Shikha Prashar.
India is home to one of the highest rates of female infanticide incidents in the world. In a recent global study on female infanticide , it has been determined that at least 50 million girls have gone “missing” due to sex-selective abortions. Thousands of baby girls are abandoned each year, with very few that are able to be rescued, which is caused by an extension of sex selection practices.
For the last few years, the members of The Pink Foundation have been working tirelessly to advocate against the ongoing female gendercide practices like infanticide, feticide, baby killings to the world. They have been raising global awareness concerning the loss of female lives in India, pursuing justice for the lives lost, assisting in the rescue of and care for baby girls, and empowering women.
Pink Foundation has also secured a home for abandoned girls, where girls are sheltered, fed, educated, and nurtured to strive in their live. Doing the show some of the stories these girls were shared. It was a proud moment to see that these are some amazing girls are fighting against all odds and flourishing in life.
The Pink Foundation is a US-based non-profit that seeks to end female gendercide. We do this through raising global awareness concerning the loss of female lives, pursuing justice for the lives lost, and saving girls—through assisting Indian organizations in the rescue of and care for abandoned/orphaned girls.
“Our mission is to end female gendercide. We raise global awareness about female gendercide, pursue justice for lives lost, we also partner with Indian organizations to rescue and care for vulnerable girls, and we empower women,” said a statement from the organization.
