It’s hard to believe, but true – slavery still exists in every culture.
Imagine you’re a six year old girl, living in the slums of Cambodia. Your parents can’t afford to feed themselves, much less you. A couple of men come by one day and offer your parents some money. . . for you. From that point on your life consists of drugs, sexual exploitation, and hopelessness.
It can be overwhelming to think that such horror goes on in our modern world. But you also might be wondering, “Why is this my problem?” not because you’re un-compassionate, but because it’s happening on the other side of the globe.
The founder of The Rapha House asked the same questions. (Please excuse the background noise. I was at their headquarters in Joplin, MO.) She is a Gutzy Girl.
You can help The Rapha House extend unconditional love, physical rescue and transformational healing to young girls that are rescued from slavery and exploitative situations.
Remember to post where you are donating this year. I’ll be posting a list of ideas on Thursday.
