From Joyce Meyer:
“Today is Human Trafficking Awareness Day. Hand of Hope is actively working to rescue and restore those trapped in this horrific industry.
“THE SEX SLAVE INDUSTRY—also known as “human trafficking”—is a modern day atrocity that exists far below most of our awareness. We tend to assume it isn’t much of a problem in the United States. But the truth is, human trafficking happens everywhere. And our largest cities, such as Los Angeles, are hubs for trafficking in America.
The facts are shocking. It is estimated there are more than three hundred thousand victims of human trafficking right now in the U.S. alone. Fifty percent of them are under the age of 18. Approximately 10,000 women in Los Angeles are currently trafficked in underground brothels. These victims lose their identity, dignity and hope.
And only one percent are ever rescued.”
