Destiny Rescue helping save children from human trafficking
Human trafficking exists in every country across the globe. An estimated 1 million children are believed to be trapped in the sex trade, with 99 percent of them female.
Destiny Rescue, an international nonprofit stationed in Indiana, is fighting on behalf of all of those children.
In 2018, Destiny Rescue saved more than 1,000 children.
"Destiny Rescue is this, to rescue children from the sex trade," explained Aaron Brown, national director of operations. "We have a team of undercover agents that go into brothels, bars, some of the darkest places on the planet in search of children who are being sexually exploited."
Destiny Rescue helps children in six countries throughout the world, such as Thailand, India and the Dominican Republic.
"We go searching for these kids, and once we identify where they're at, we put plans in place in rescue them," Brown said. "Once rescued, we restore them."
Destiny Rescue helps the victims not only escape but also find jobs, become self-sufficient and get the help and support they need.
"For them, to believe someone cares is shocking and hard to believe initially," Kirk Falconer said. "When they discover someone
cares, they get their smile back."
January is Human Trafficking Awareness Month, and Destiny Rescue is hoping to spread the word about the importance of bringing light to this issue.
Destiny Rescue wants to challenge those passionate about saving children from human trafficking to get involved. You can host jewelry parties, partner with your business or church, or donate funds toward their cause.
