Fight Human Trafficking with Family Christian Stores Nov. 22-30

Did you know about this? Do you know that there are an estimated 27 million adults and 13 million children around the world who are victims of human trafficking? And that the majority are sold for sex? According to UNICEF 300,000 children younger than 18 are currently trafficked to serve in armed conflicts worldwide.

It is just heart breaking to know that this happens more than we could ever imagine. And it is everywhere – in the world, down the street, you may even know someone who has been effected personally by human trafficking.  We just cannot turn a blind eye to these things; we cannot see them but they are all too real. . Viray was one of those victims; abused, physically, emotionally, and sexually.  Chan found work in the sex industry because of poverty – trying to survive.  Can you imagine?

November 22-30 Family Christian will donate the earnings made from your purchases to Destiny Rescue so they can begin their work in the Dominican Republic. Such a beautiful country; ranked 4th in THE WORLD for exportation of women to the sex trade.  How would we not know if not for an organization such as this,that seeks to reach out to these women, and to make those secret things known. Destiny Rescue offers help, and hope to those that are enslaved by this industry. Destiny Rescue offers victims a safe after care home where they receive counseling, life skills training, education, fun,  and most importantly the opportunity to learn about Jesus. Be a part of their ministry simply  by shopping at your local Family Christian Store or online during the week of November 22-30.

 

 

Join us in the fight against Human Trafficking and remember His words:
Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.
 (James 1:27)
