Editor’s Note: Human trafficking is a deep-rooted crime around the world. It involves pecuniary advantage and exploitation of other people’s lives. It is not easy to rescue the victims of human trafficking, and the road to recovery for the survivors is even more difficult. In this issue of SHARE, we will explain the anti-human trafficking efforts of CEDAR’s partners in different parts of the world. The section ‘Focus’ introduces CEDAR’s new anti-trafficking partner in Thailand. The ‘Learn a Little More’ section talks about the methods used by our partners in India in their fight against human trafficking. In ‘Join Hands Join Hearts’, several child survivors of human trafficking expressed their aspirations using pictures and words. The ‘Back to the Bible’ section inspires us to ponder how culture can make us ignore the value of other people’s lives.
The sufferings of human trafficking victims break our hearts, but we are grateful to see some of them being rescued and their lives restored. We would like to invite everyone to bear witness to these happenings.
