Increasing Awareness on Human Trafficking

(click picture to watch a trailer)

      Human trafficking is a serious issue in Europe.  The European Union made a statement that there are, “an estimated 880,000 victims of forced labor, including forced sexual exploitation. That is 1.8 persons per 1,000 inhabitants” (EU).  This year they have planned an Anti-Trafficking Day on October 18th for all of Europe.

       Our ReachGlobal team in Bucharest is involved in trying to network resources and organizations.  From Oct 14-19th, our group has planned flash mobs, videos in the subway and street performances to raise awareness and to encourage people to see the film Nefarious (excellent documentary about human trafficking from a Christian perspective) and other films.    Our team has rented out a 280 seat movie theater to show the film.  They are inviting all the churches in town to come to a concert and screening of the movie.  Please pray that God would stir hearts to come.  Please also pray that God would increase awareness of this issue and stir His body’s heart to action combating sex slavery!
