He delivers me from my enemies; Surely You lift me above those who rise up against me; You rescue me from the violent man. Psalm 18:48
Deception. Coercion. Enslavement. These words define the sinister world of human trafficking and the sex slave industry. It’s a $32 billion industry – the fastest-growing criminal activity in the world.
Some 1.2 million children are trafficked or sold into slavery each year. Around the world, two children are trafficked every minute.
Young girls with hopes and dreams of better jobs and opportunities are often the prime targets of traffickers. With the promise of a good-paying job, these young girls – some of them children – are tricked and trapped in brothels to work as sex slaves. They’re beaten if they refuse their captor’s commands and they suffer long-lasting physical and emotional trauma.
LIFE Outreach has developed a simple yet effective outreach strategy to raise awareness about human trafficking and to reach, rescue and restore children living in trafficking hotspots.
Reach children living in the villages where human traffickers target vulnerable, at-risk girls. As we provide much-needed food and resources, we can reduce the need for the families to send their children away to find work.
Rescue children from living and working on the streets. We can encourage them and offer them a new home and a new opportunity to be free from the lifestyle.
Restore hearts, minds and bodies to the beauty God designed for them. Through God’s grace, prayer, ministry materials and counseling, we seek to help survivors overcome the shame of their past.
Mission:RESCUELIFE is currently active in Cambodia, Thailand, India, Greece, Ukraine and other countries known for human trafficking. Currently, LIFE is constructing two safe havens in Southeast Asia for victims from the sex trade to recover.
