Helping Combat Trafficking in Women Out of India

On June 15, 2016, we sent funds for purchase of three sewing machines for women in India that graduated from the Tailoring School, which was started by our ministry partners, the Agape Royal Ministries in Trivandrum (state of Kerala, India).

We joined hands with Christian friends in India in Christian response to human trafficking that sadly takes so many girls away from their homelands and families and forces them into sex services, slave labor and organ harvesting.

Binitha (pictured above) is 29 years old. She had no means to provide for herself and was an easy target for human traffickers. Because of help and faithful testimony of Indian Christians, she accepted Christ. At Tailoring School, Binitha learned to operate a sewing machine. The machine provided for Binitha will help her earn a living and stay away from trafficking.

Human trafficking is the plague of the 21st century. It is considered one of the most profitable businesses alongside drug trafficking and weapons trade. You can help provide sewing machines for tailoring centers in India, Moldova and beyond through "Teaching Them to Fish" project started by Turlac Mission. The cost of one sewing machine and supply of fabric is $200. Donate on-line HERE.
