Celebrated Not Traded
As I sat yesterday having my morning tea watching CNN, the international version, I was startled to see the special report they were doing on sex slavery in Romania. They concentrated on two brothers who would go into small villages which are very economically depressed with few job opportunities and offer young ladies an opportunity to move to a western European country for work to make good money. The young ladies would then find themselves enslaved, forced to prostitute themselves, raped, drugged, beaten into submission, lost to their families. The brothers are now in jail but they were only two of many that make money by preying on poor families with daughters. In an interview with the mother of the brothers she said they did no wrong they were only trying to make a living. What?!?! In response to their investigations CNN is launching a new effort called CNN Freedom Fighters to combat modern day slavery.
Join me in helping to make others aware and in praying for ways to help. Let's Celebrate Not Trade.
