Young boys and girls are forced into military camps where they are trained to fight as rebels. They are often beaten, raped and malnourished as a means of training children to be young killing machines.
There is mafia-organized begging where women, men and children are forced into begging on the streets retaining none of what they collect. They are often forced to live in sewers, cellars or dark gutted apartments where many of them are crowded into a small room under lock and key with little to eat.
Make Way Partners divides the work against human trafficking into two basic categories:
These are countries from which the victims are taken. They are usually economically unstable and often operating under the oppression of corrupt or indifferent governments. Eastern Europe and Africa are the fastest growing regions for exporting victims into slavery.
These are countries into which the victims are sold into slavery. These countries are usually much more economically stable in order to support the trafficking or they have a high level of sex tourism. Currently, the United States is the largest recipient of victims of human trafficking. Most of the victims brought into the U.S. are sold into the sex slave trade or smuggled in for forced manual labor.
Make Way Partners looks to no other power than the hope of the Gospel. This hope is shared by Christians like you willing to be the incarnational presence of Christ in the world through prayer and financial support.
