Believe it or not, in our modern day, there are many Princesses who are literally locked in a “tower”.
Human trafficking is the action or practice of illegally transporting people from one country or area to another, typically for the purposes of forced labour or commercial sexual exploitation.
Every year, millions of vulnerable children and women are trafficked for sex around the world.
Pimps and brothel owners often lure impoverished women with promises of a proper job, but then force them to sell their bodies over and over again. At other times, these traffickers trick families into giving up young girls, or they kidnap them to fetch a high price in the sex trade. Cybersex trafficking is on the rise as internet access increases everywhere.
Controlled with fear and violence, trafficking victims are left vulnerable to repeated abuse and disease. Many lose hope of ever getting help. (Courtesy IJM Casework Series)
I am particularly drawn to this cause because it involves children, and I shudder to think what if my children had to go through that.
And I am also drawn because it involves women, and as a woman I cringe to think any woman should be forced into this kind of life. These women are so precious, with inherent value, and should be treated with respect. They don't deserve to be held captive against their will.
Leo Buscaglia, American author and motivational speaker said:
“It’s not enough to have lived. We should be determined to live for something. May I suggest that it be creating joy for others, sharing what we have for the betterment of personkind, bringing hope to the lost and love to the lonely.”
Those of us Princesses who are free, and can help, should by all means lend a helping hand to our sisters in need.
I may not be able to do everything, but I can do something.
Human trafficking is not okay.
Join me in working with IJM to support their efforts to rescue these Princesses.
