White Cross – Global Human Trafficking
Health and Wellness
GoalThe goal of this project is to to provide materials used to reach out to women and children being exploited in labor or prostitution.
SummaryThis White Cross project seeks to raise $10,000 annually to produce educational materials for churches and individuals around the world interested in ending human trafficking.
Description“I will enter into judgment with them …[They have] traded boys for prostitutes, and sold girls for wine.” Joel 3:2-3
Jesus began his ministry by announcing that he had come “to proclaim release to the captives … to let the oppressed go free.” (Luke 4:18)
American Baptists lived out these words as they began moving against slavery in the 1820s. Today, International Ministries combats modern-day slavery through global ministries of rescue and aftercare, addressing physical, mental, spiritual, education, relational and vocational needs.
This project will be managed by missionaries and Baptist partners in many countries around the world.
It is anticipated that this project will improve the overall emotional and spiritual well-being of those caught in human trafficking as they realize that others do care about them.
