It seems like the world is exploding in crisis around us. Massacres in Paris and Nigeria are becoming too much the norm. Air planes are disappearing with no real answers. The Russian Bear is flexing her muscles. ISIS is running rampant through much of the Middle East.
All of these are fairly regionalized problems, with the exception of the terrorist attacks. We know that the terrorist attacks can occur virtually anywhere with little to no warning. There is an issue that is not regionalized. It has long been a worldwide crisis, but only recently has it come to the attention of our western culture.
That issue is human trafficking and more narrowly, sex trafficking. This modern day slavery is a crisis that is made even more so by the fact that it is a lucrative business for organized crime. People who care nothing for the lives and souls of other people, people who are determined to make money, regardless of the wreckage they leave behind, are exploiting children and adults, girls and boys, for their own selfish ends.
At the IHRG we are committing our lives to working to end the tragedy of human trafficking, particularly sex trafficking. We are standing with the helpless who are caught in the web of organized crime, most often through no fault of their own. We are going to continue to be a voice for the voiceless who cannot be heard from the holes where they are being held against their will and forced into sexual slavery.
We will end it, not by ourselves, but by being a part of the worldwide effort to make a difference and end the crisis of human trafficking.
