Healing for Victims of Sexual Exploitation
Working in: Cameroon, Ghana and Guatemala
Human trafficking is a violation of one’s rights and dignity. It’s a crime against humanity. And it’s a crime against God who created men and women in His likeness. This crime inflicts unimaginable pain on its victims, especially children and adolescents. They are traumatized physically, emotionally and psychologically. And without intervention, these victims will carry their wounds for life.
In 2013, UNICEF-USA reported that there were about 21 million victims trafficked around the world* and approximately 80% of trafficking involves sexual exploitation**. Because of widespread and devastating impact, human trafficking has earned the epithet, “modern-day slavery”.
The Canadian Bible Society has recently partnered with the Bible Societies in Cameroon, Ghana and Guatemala in providing help to victims of human trafficking through Bible-based trauma healing programs.
