I am headed to Athens and Thessaloniki, Greece to set everything in motion for the International Human Rights Group to become the supplier of attorneys for victims of sex trafficking who have been rescued through the work of the A21 Campaign.
Under this partnership we will be identifying, and bringing on board, attorneys to represent these victims as they provide eyewitness testimony regarding their time as sex slaves. We will also be working with these young ladies, and sometimes men, to help them with their immigration issues. Remember, these young people have often been taken across borders illegally. Even though they are not willing participants in their travel, they are still illegal immigrants. This means that we must provide them with legal help to get their documents in order so they can return home or stay in the country where they find themselves.
In all of this the International Human Rights Group is working to bring help to the victims of sex trafficking. We are beginning in Greece, we will quickly be working in Bulgaria and the Ukraine. From there we will be expanding into all of Europe. Pray for us to have wisdom and the resources necessary to hire the lawyers needed to provide this critical service in Greece and beyond.
Thank you for your support and your prayers!
