GET INVOLVED - GLOBALLY
Human trafficking is a form of modern-day slavery that enables people to profit from the control and exploitation of others. It’s a crime in which both children and adults are bought and sold into forced labor or commercial sexual exploitation through force, fraud, or coercion. Human trafficking dehumanizes people, turning them into commodities. It is a global problem that affects people in every country in the world. Victims include women, men, girls, and boys, and they cross all racial, ethnic, socio-economic, and educational backgrounds. Traffickers prey on individuals who are vulnerable. Situations including poverty, homelessness, family breakdown, societal exclusion, disasters, and conflict are some of the factors that create vulnerabilities to trafficking.
NCM Canada is providing support for Shechem Children's home in the Philippines - a home for children rescued from cybersex trafficking. These children have been exploited by parents, relatives, or people known to them, to provide sexual images and content which was subsequently sold and shared world-wide on the internet. Nazarene Compassionate Ministries is partnering with the International Justice Mission, and the Philippines Children’s Ministries Network to rescue and rehabilitate these children.
Shechem Home provides for…
a safe shelter and home environment where they experience love and care
the initial assessment of the victim and his/her family and critical medical & psychological care
trauma counselling and spiritual care
a program that prepares the victim to be reunited with caring relatives or reintegrated through another avenue such as adoption, foster care, or independent living
The children who live at the Shechem Children’s Home have all survived sexual exploitation. Together, they gather around a long table to eat dinner together with their house parents. There is laughter and a level of noise that comes from a dozen children all talking together. Sometimes, there are also tears. For while Shechem seeks transformation through the love of Christ, the scars of exploitation are deep.
