It’s a scourge on modern society. Millions of children around the world are trafficked or trapped in sexual exploitation with little hope for freedom. We bring freedom. We shine a light in the darkness.
This is the crucial first step. Children are bound either by physical chains or psychological ones and our rescue agents’ job is to bring the girls out of darkness. Posing as customers, they seek to win the child’s trust before making an offer to take them to a safe rescue home.
If Rescue is the starter’s gun, then Restoration is the marathon. This is where the long yet joyful healing process begins. Rescued children are taken to safe houses where they sleep safely, receive education, vocational training, counseling and healthcare, spiritual guidance and, most importantly, love.
We strive to bring children out of darkness, but we’d rather they weren’t there in the first place. We have Prevention Homes in different countries where we care for at-risk children – often siblings of rescued girls – until they are of age to find safe employment or higher education.
This is our general donation pool where funds can be immediately directed to our area of greatest need; whether a new property, medical treatment for a child or school fees.
Reena, Eisha and Nadiya were rescued at the Nepal border earlier this year. Since then, we have been following up with them and their families to see how they are doing.
COVID-19’s impact on our projects is different in each country. Destiny Rescue teams are adapting in innovative and meaningful ways to continue to carry out our mission on the ground.
In February, our teams, in coordination with multiple law-enforcement agencies, executed an operation that rescued a 2-and-a-half-year-old boy from a life of continued sexual exploitation.
