Putting a Stop to Human Trafficking
Putting a Stop to Human Trafficking

Every person is created in the image of God. Human trafficking—the exploitation of men, women, and children in order to gain a profit—is therefore a crime against both humanity and our Creator.

“It’s a form of slavery,” said Samaritan's Purse president Franklin Graham, who recently returned from a trip to Southeast Asia. “And this is happening today in 2015.”

This modern-day slavery has become a global crisis with an estimated 27 million victims. Some are taken by force. Others are deceived by promises of a better life.

By force or coercion, trafficking victims are compelled to work against their will in a wide range of settings including factories, brothels, houses, streets, farms, and fishing boats. Many are abused beyond comprehension.

Samaritan’s Purse is working to prevent the horrors of human trafficking primarily through education and prevention programs in vulnerable communities. We also work with Christian partners to help restore victims.

Through these efforts in Asia and Africa, our staff shares the hope of Christ with those who are suffering. Please join us in praying that God will use our ministry to help bring justice and shine the light of the Gospel.

Prevent Human Trafficking When the Hebrews left the drought-stricken land of Canaan seeking food in Egypt, they had no idea that they were headed into centuries of slavery. The same is true for thousands today who are lured from their homelands by false promises of better paychecks and brighter futures, only to fall into the clutches of human traffickers who exploit and abuse them and make it all but impossible to escape. To stop this modern-day slave trade, we are working in the Name of Jesus to prevent trafficking and create job opportunities where people live. Your gift will help provide vocational training and warn laborers about the dangers of crossing international borders, while opening doors for the Gospel.
