By now you may be aware of the emerging problem of human slavery that is taking place today. Some are calling it the human rights issue of the twenty first century. And it is not only taking place in remote countries, it is rampant in the western as well as the eastern hemisphere….perhaps even in your own city (see CNN ‘Sex Trafficking: An American Problem Too’ http://www.cnn.com/2009/OPINION/11/25/carr.human.trafficking/index.html).
The numbers are staggering: National Geographic reports that there are over 27 million slaves in the world today, and according to UNICEF nearly 2 million children are exploited in the global sex trade. Here in the U.S. the FBI estimates that there are well over 100,000 trafficked children and teens in the United States. How can this abomination take place in such a civilized time as this?
And while the human trafficking problem is mammoth, we can each do our part to help eradicate this tragedy. Through monetary donations from company profits, the team at Novo Solutions is working together with agencies overseas that are helping children at risk so they are not vulnerable to such entrapment.
Some problems in this world are unsolvable – but this one is solvable. Will you consider looking into this horrible problem and lending your aid? Here are just a few reputable agencies that are working worldwide to stop this problem:
- International Justice Mission – http://www.ijm.org/
- Exodus Cry – http://www.exoduscry.com/
