South Thailand Ministry

November 7th, 2017 | in Children |    0   

Marginalized and exploited, trafficked women and children suffer oppressive captivity in Phuket, which is one of the top sex tourism destinations in all of Southeast Asia. The C&MA’s For Freedom International team in South Thailand is currently the only faith-based organization in this area, providing alternatives for those seeking a way out. We exist to “break chains of oppression so that individuals have an opportunity to encounter Christ, live in freedom, and change the world.” A safe house partnership provides women with an escape from unsafe people, and dangerous environments. A vocational training school equips women with skills for dignified employment. A child advocacy center, in partnership with the national police force, offers protection for kids from exploitation.

A Valentine’s Day flower distribution in the red light district extended an invitation to a weekly hair and nails treatment, and now sees ladies returning for repeat visits. Friendships are being built, trust is being gained, and prayer is being welcomed by these beautiful women. Since no other agencies have cared for this vulnerable demographic, the ladies are completely perplexed by these, “no strings attached” free gifts.

Would you consider helping women on their journey towards freedom from exploitation in the sex industry as they learn new employable skills? You can donate online to this ministry here.
