In 2018, Freedom 4/24 will be highlighting the efforts of our international partner, Home of New Beginnings, in Thailand and our local partner, Redeeming Love, in Los Angeles, CA.

Home of New Beginnings is a holistic relational ministry in Bangkok and Pattaya, Thailand, that seeks to address the spiritual, emotional, physical, and educational needs of women and children who desire to leave the sex trade. It is a place of safety and hope that builds trust and community around faith-centered healing and education. Girls who live at New Beginnings receive an education through college, as well as, housing, food, vocational supplies and medical support.

Redeeming Love is a Christ following, faith-based community operating in Los Angeles. Here’s just a portion of statistics that Redeeming Love has gathered on human trafficking: On average, traffickers target girls during their most vulnerable stage, between the ages of 12-14. They select girls with vulnerabilities that make them easier to manipulate and control. Many victims have backgrounds that include foster care, abandonment, or homelessness and therefore have little or no familial support structures to return to. Tragically, by the time they are enslaved by their trafficker, over 90% of victims have already been sexually abused at some point in their childhood. Redeeming Love believes it is their responsibility to fight for the cause of the oppressed and to be agents for their healing. They do this by offering care to the whole person in order to achieve their physical, emotional, mental and spiritual healing.
