Today is World Day Against Trafficking in Persons.
All around the world, young women and girls are being exploited in the sex industry — particularly in Thailand and India.
These girls are not “choosing” to sell their bodies. In their culture, women are expected to provide for their families. If they can’t afford an education, becoming a sex worker is often seen as their only option. So even if they haven’t been kidnapped and sold into this industry, they are still being held captive … it’s just that they are being held captive by poverty.
Watch this short message from World Help president Noel Brewer Yeatts to learn more:
This World Day Against Trafficking, you can help a girl experience freedom — freedom from the sex industry and the freedom found in Christ.
All it takes is $50 to help provide her with critical needs such as a safe place to live, counseling, medical care, and education or vocational training so she can escape this abusive life for good.
