We're fundraising for Tearfund
Two years ago I sat in a room with twenty other guys to hear about the work of a tear fund agent working to bring young girls out of sex slavery. We were in the middle of a seven day cycle race around the south island and had already raised $20,000 to support Tear Fund in this work, but his stories made me want to do more. He talked about raiding brothels, working to help the girls recover physically and then the even longer process of helping them recover their lives and wellbeing. I particularly remember the story of a girl that was sold by her Auntie, and believed she could never escape because of what they might do to her family. So much love for a family that had abandoned her to the worst possible fate. It made a difference that we had helped give her and others like her a hope and a future. That matters.
This year I'm taking up the Tearfund Poverty Cycle challenge to help combat human trafficking and exploitation.
