Supporting: Hope For Southeast Asia
Posted on December 01 2016
For the month of December we are partnering with Messenger International with their project "Hope For Southeast Asia".
HOPE FOR SOUTHEAST ASIA
This project is special to our hearts because we want to help women in any way possible! Especially those that have no voice of their own. This will help to save women and their children from sex slave trafficking. Out dontaion will go directly to help this cause!
General Investigative Operations: $2,500/month to Southeast Asia for six months
According to the U.S. Department of State, in 2016 an undisclosed country* in Southeast Asia was downgraded to a Tier 3 rating for its human trafficking prevention efforts. This defines the country’s government as one that does not comply with the minimum standards for prevention and is not making sustainable efforts to do so. With cultural barriers and corruption running rampant, progress has been difficult, but hope still remains. In the face of what some would consider certain defeat, we press on knowing that no challenge is too great for our God.
To combat the status quo for this country, we are sending an increase of resources to our onsite partners, The Exodus Road. They have spent years extensively working in this area with local police, paving the way to change not only laws, but also culture. We have seen hundreds rescued and their captors brought to justice, but we want more. These funds will go directly to backing investigations and casework to empower rescue throughout the region. Join us in bringing hope to a country that is desperately searching for freedom.
This will cover:
- Salaries of national investigators
- Travel/lodging for investigations
- Legal fees
- Victim services for post-raid care
