Project Red Light Rescue - Rescuing Victims of Human Trafficking

Projects

Poverty has many expressions of abuse but none are perhaps as devastating to the human heart as “sex slavery”.  Little girls are bought, stolen or sold by people who prey upon them as a source of livelihood. Girls are often thrown in cages or locked in rooms for up to 3 years where they are repeatedly abused and tortured until they lose all will to run away.  Then they are made to stand in the street, selling themselves for almost nothing...
  
Asia's largest red-light district:  
Three square kilometers crammed with an estimated 40,000 women working its 24 lanes, earning at least $200 million a year in revenue for their traffickers, where 95% of the children of prostituted women become prostitutes, where children are trafficked into abuse and violence daily, where 73.7% of all girls trapped inside the brothel system must be rescued if they are ever to reach the outside world again...  The world has forgotten them, but God hasn’t.  It is maybe hard to imagine that anything can be done to change this, but there is something we can do.  

S.O.S.International is partnering with LIFE Outreach International and BTC Mumbai in a response to the devastation wreaked on the lives of these girls and their families.

The project works to prevent child sex trafficking and to rescue and rehabilitate trafficking victims after the rescue. This initiative provides for each girl's needs, provides care for children of women trafficked into the sex trade and rescues children before they can be trafficked. We do not merely hope to temporarily relieve the suffering of women and children, but to help put an end to this form of slavery.  By becoming involved, you can combat human trafficking and have tangible and lasting impact on the lives of victims. 

What you can do:

$ 1,800 rescues and provides one year of care for a girl
$ 900 rescues and provides for 6 months of care
$ 450 rescues and supports a girl for 3 months
$ 150 supports a rescued girl for one month
If you can’t give $150 please consider giving $75 to combine with another's gift to rescue a woman or young girl from this injustice.

or take a pledge to end this horrible form of slavery...

 

 "He will rescue the poor when they cry to him; he will help the oppressed, who have no one to defend them. He feels pity for the weak and the needy, and he will rescue them. He will redeem them from oppression and violence, for their lives are precious to him." -Psalm 72:12-14 (New Living Translation)
