Sex Trafficking is the recruitment, harboring, transportation, provision, or obtaining of a person for the purposes of commercial sex acts. Women and children are caught in human trafficking all over the world, and right in our neighborhoods.
According to Destiny Rescue, a non-profit organization combatting human trafficking worldwide, there are an estimated 1.2 million children trafficked each year with the majority of them being lured, bribed, or forced into the sex trade. That's one child every 26 seconds!
"Stop Human Trafficking In New England" (SHINE) is a ministry of caring individuals from Evangel. We are committed to preventing the atrocity of human trafficking by bringing awareness to our community, along with rescue and transformation to victims of human trafficking.
