The following gives an overview of how local people are engaging in the fight against slavery through TraffickFree Communities.
The communities have grown and Oasis is currently in partnership with several around the USA. They are all reaching out to their local cities through a multitude of believers in a locally sensitive manner,
- Have supported local police forces with FREEDOM BAGS that are given to girls in the immediate aftermath of a rescue.
- Have provided volunteers for mentoring life skills to young women who need help and support as they reintegrate back into community life. Several women have found that the grace and love found in the way of Jesus Christ has helped them find holistic freedom.
- Are advocating for those enslaved by lobbying local city governments about the human trafficking situation in their area.
- Have helped develop law enforcement training for local Police departments.
- Are teaching teenagers vulnerable to traffiking ways on how to protect themselves and their friends.
- Are helping churches to practically support, pray for and strengthen the vulnerable and enslaved in their communities.
- Have partnered with organizations such as FairTrade towns to develop a business culture of justice and integrity.
- Have practically supported victims of human trafficking in finding places of safety
- Are working to develop communities that are places of reintegration and support
- Have joined together and prayed for a young trafficked girl and seen her found and rescued four days later.
- Have supported the global work of fighting trafficking and been part of the network that has helped hundreds of woman and children be rescued for abuse and slavery. Recently the Oasis team in India rescued over 81 women and children
Please be encouraged, YOUR support was an integral part of the team that helped these activities, and the ripples that result from them, happen.
As Aristotle said “the whole is more than the sum of the parts”. Working together we have enabled people to taste and see how good God is.
