Hundreds of thousands of women and girls are sold and violently abused as sex slaves each year. Here's what you can do to help.

Help stop sex trafficking!

Woman_with_bowl (8K)

How would you react if someone suddenly abducted your mother, sister, or young daughter?

And how would you feel if the abductor then sold her as a slave to sex traffickers?

For families who fall victim to this horrific fate, it is like a never-ending nightmare. Some husbands, mothers, and families never sleep peacefully again.

Hundreds of thousands of women, teens, and girls as young as 5 enter prostitution against their will every year.

They are sold, bought, and handed on from one degraded person to another, which rips away their freedom, and opens the victim to AIDS and other vile sexual diseases that may damage their health permanently — if it doesn't kill them.

Nepalese mother searching for her trafficked daughterThis desperate mother travelled from her village in Nepal to Mumbai, India, trying to rescue her teenage daughter who was trafficked into an Indian brothel.

Nepalese girls are prized for their fair skin and are lured with promises of a good job and the chance to improve their lives.

“I will stay in Mumbai,” said the mother, “until I find my daughter or die. I am not leaving here without her.”

Children forced into pornography

The United Nations estimates that 250 million copies of pornographic material featuring children are in circulation worldwide. These children become the unwilling victims of predatory pedophiles.

UNICEF estimates that 100,000 children are sold for sex in Thailand alone.

When President Bush addressed the UN General Assembly on September 23, 2003, he said:

“There's a special evil in the abuse and exploitation of the most innocent and vulnerable. The victims of [the] sex trade see little of life before they see the very worst of life, an underground of brutality and lonely fear. Those who create these victims and profit from their suffering must be severely punished. Those who patronize this industry debase themselves and deepen the misery of others.”

Ministries offer alternatives

Several Christian ministries are making inroads into getting girls and women out of the sex trade.

One of these is Nightlight, a ministry in urban Bangkok, Thailand. Nightlight is working in an area notorious for its horrific sex trafficking.

Nightlight workers build trust with women in the red light neighborhoods of Bangkok. They help them find other employment, organize job training, shelter, counseling, and health care. They introduce the women and children to Jesus Christ and connect them with church families where they receive discipleship and friendship.

How you can help

  1. Buy some Nightlight jewelry. Bracelets, beads, pearl necklaces, earrings of turquoise and wood look beautiful and make a wonderful talking point. Funds from the sale will help Nightlight workers continue changing someone's life.
  2. Make a direct donation to Nightlight, either outright or when you buy some jewelry.
  3. Pray. Sex-traffic busters are hated by the pimps and gangs who exploit the women and girls they force into prostitution and force to appear on pornographic videos and websites. Pray for the workers and groups who are making a difference to the lives of exploited women and girls. Pray for the families of the victims. Pray that the victims will get relief and salvation through the ministries who tell them about Jesus Christ.

Sex trafficking is a subject that makes many people feel uncomfortable. But if you want to know what uncomfortable is, think of the lives of the women and children forced into it.
