A society that devalues human life by participating in and pardoning human trafficking is a society that values power, money, and the lusts of the flesh over human decency, freedom, and the sanctity of life. When a society becomes apathetic to the suffering of others, then groups of people are devalued, despised, objectified, and exploited to greater degrees of depravity — breaking down families and communities. The result is a vulnerable, unhealthy, and traumatized society.
Survivors of human trafficking must battle ongoing effects of both physical and psychological trauma. Many deal with PTSD, depression, substance abuse, anxiety disorders, and thoughts of suicide, on top of the physical trauma their bodies face from ongoing abuse, starvation, STDs, and other gynecological health problems. The healing journey is long, deep, and painful for trafficking survivors and can at times feel hopeless. However, we believe God is able to do the impossible.
