Many people are unaware that human sex trafficking is a global problem and a local tragedy affecting young girls on US soil. Children you know and love, in your local community or social circles, may right now be affected.
But, if you don’t know the signs to look for you will likely miss it. And lose the opportunity to make a difference.
The effects of this specific type of female sexual abuse are particularly damaging and difficult to recover from. After being freed from this type of slavery, with the right assistance and rehabilitation, full recovery is possible.
Global Hope 365 CEO and founder, Rima Nashabishi, shares with you her personal story and her mission to raise awareness about human sex trafficking and how you can participate in this imperative to save lives.
