Defeat Human Trafficking

 

Dear Friends and Supporters,

On behalf our Holy Trinity Portland Defeat Human Trafficking Ministry, thank you for supporting our January/February service project to raise awareness during the National Month of Observance to Prevent Slavery and Human Trafficking. We are humbled by your generosity in participating and the ways you contributed to our undertaking of collecting items to stockpile Providence Hospitals for when survivors are examined.

Your donations of clothing and monetary gifts toward the purchase of the items for the packets was tremendous! 100 packages were distributed to Providence Hospitals for their stockpile. These items allow the nurses to provide the survivors with replacements of their personal belongings that are relinquished as they are released from the hospital.

As you read this, 24.9 million victims are trapped in modern-day slavery and profits of roughly $150 billion a year are earned through this exploitation of human lives. Because of your kindness, this small act of giving allows us to continue to be part of the network that is working hand-in-hand to build global resilience in communities that are vulnerable. We are committed to applying the full weight of Orthodox Christianity principles to end the plight of Human Slavery, in all its’ forms.

Thank you again for your donations! We implore you to continue to study the issues, be a voice, and make a difference! God bless you!

Dear Lord, You are a strong tower and a mighty fortress. Help Your rescued children feel safe and begin to heal. Protect them from others who seek to harm them. Amen.
