Shared Hope International
"Getting between the Traffickers and the homeless is our goal."
The tsunami has left thousands of children and young women vulnerable to the traffickers
who will use the offer of food, small amounts of money, or just plain force to secure victims for the human marketplace.
Traffickers are taking advantage of the suffering, chaos and destruction.
While you read this message they are moving the desperate in this region to tourist destination sites
in places with legalized prostitution like the Netherlands, Singapore, India, Malaysia, and Australia.There are already reports of children being abducted from hospitals and kidnapped off the streets!
For you who have called or contacted us at Shared Hope International about the tsunami relief, yes
we are fighting to protect the children and young women left vulnerable to traffickers.
Any donations received by Shared Hope and directed to the tsunami effort will immediately go
towards this work of sheltering, protecting, and restoring the victims of trafficking in this region.
Shared Hope International is implementing comprehensive anti-trafficking efforts
in a six-region strategy that has included major efforts in Moldova, South Africa, Dominican Republic,
Indonesia, and India in the last year.
The scheduled 2005 focus for Shared Hope is the 12 countries surrounding Singapore.
This includes all the countries affected by the tsunami.
After this disaster our task is the same, though the conditions may seem insurmountable.
We are dedicated to getting between the Traffickers and the vulnerable they prey on,
and we are dedicated to liberating and restoring the ones now in bondage.
We need your prayers for wisdom!
The staff at Shared Hope International is also supporting existing organizations who are doing direct relief work.
My husband Vern and I are supporting two organizations we trust to deliver the vital basic necessities of food,
water, shelter and medical care.
In addition to Shared Hope, we have added Mercy Corps and NorthWest Medical Teams to our year-end giving.
