“SHARE” 238 – Hidden Crisis in the Pandemic: Human Trafficking

The COVID-19 pandemic in Hong Kong is still unsettled and the labour market has been severely damaged. When the local situation worries us deeply, we are even more worried about the situation of the poor in developing countries. Not only do they face the risk of infection, they also suffer from losing their livelihoods and food shortage due to the pandemic. In order to survive, they desperately find a way out, and they are more likely to fall into the prey of human traffickers.

This issue of SHARE will talk about the more rampant human trafficking problem under the pandemic, especially the situation of poor children who are the most vulnerable to the influence of online fraud (“Focus”). Also we will share how our partner has responded to the “new normal” and continued in rescuing work under the pandemic (“Blessings by Offering”), and mobilised the church and community to fight against child trafficking (“Learn a Little More”). May the Lord who laments with us, encourages us to hear and respond to the needs of the exploited and trafficked (“Back to the Bible”).
