Missions Monday

18 Jun

It’s time for Missions Monday.

Every Monday I will introduce you to some great charities that you can get involved in. When I say get involved, I mean you can donate your money, time, and/or pray for these organizations who are doing amazing things to help people.

Today I would like to re-introduce you to
From the website:
“The A21 Campaign is comprised of individuals, organizations, government officials, and people like you who are committed to abolishing injustice in the 21st century. Our goal is to raise awareness, take legal action where appropriate, and offer rehabilitation services to rescued victims of human trafficking in order to fight this injustice from a comprehensive approach. Additionally, we want to branch out to address this issue from a preventative standpoint, aiming to cripple the human trafficking trade so there are fewer victims that need to be rescued.”
Statistics

•Trafficking in women is the second largest global organized crime today, generating approximately US$12 billion a year.

•There are 1.39 million victims of commercial sexual servitude worldwide.

•Tragically, only 1-2 percent of victims are rescued, and only 1 in 100,000 Europeans involved in trafficking are convicted.

There are many ways that you can get involved. In fact the A21 website lists out 21 ways you can help on their website here:
