The Problem That Needs Solving
I talk a lot about moving to Thailand, where my husband and I will be working with organization that rescues children from human trafficking… But I realize I could be talking about solutions to a problem you may not know needs solving!
Child trafficking is wrong. I think we can all agree on that! But really, how big of a problem is this? Is this really a worldwide issue that needs to be fought?
20.9 MILLION PEOPLE ARE BEING TRAFFICKED RIGHT NOW…
One in five human trafficking victims are children.
And 2 million children are exploited every year in the global commercial sex trade.
My throat closes and my eyes well up every time I read these statistics. They aren’t easy to read, they aren’t fun to talk about. But as Nathaniel Branden said, “The first step toward change is awareness.” We must realize that these statistics are true. And that will leave us with a problem. A problem that must be solved.
How can you get involved in fighting child trafficking today?
