5 Tactics Christians Groups Are Using to End Human Trafficking

By    |   Wednesday, 25 March 2015 12:37 PM

Christian groups are working together to target human trafficking, working to put an end to the illegal trade of human beings that enslaves 27 million people internationally.

Here are five tactics used by Christian organizations to take on this complex topic:

1. Donate money. Organizations like Faith Alliance Against Human Trafficking (FAAST) collect dollars to put into programs that fight human trafficking. The FAAST website pointed to Matthew 6:21, "For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." Joyce Meyer Ministries has funded homes in Los Angeles, Ethiopia, Thailand and other countries to help rescued women.

2. Educate yourself and others. The vastness and complexity of human trafficking is often underestimated by many people. For instance, few understand that between 14,000 and 17,000 people are trafficked in the United States every year. Educating the general public and organizations about what they can do to fight human trafficking is a critical part of the battle. FAAST published "Change Agents," a seven-lesson curriculum for kids aged 8 to 13 years that teaches children and families about the issue and also teaches them how to avoid becoming victims.

3. Missionaries worldwide work to give sanctuary to people who are trying to escape human trafficking. In 2012, DW reported on South Korean missionaries helping women escape captivity. Many North Korean women are in perilous situations after being trafficked in China.

4. Pray. "Pray for freedom for everyone currently a victim. Pray for physical, spiritual, and emotional wholeness for sex trafficking survivors, and for their continued safety and possible reintegration into their family or community," Today's Christian Woman wrote.

5. Take action in a variety of ways. Fundraising activities will increase funds that organizations fighting human trafficking can use to educate, rescue, and operate. FAAST recommends buying slave-free products, and suggests using an app like Buycott that allows you to avoid buying products that are not guaranteed slave free and also reaching out to businesses to educate them about the products they sell.
