The story also features the work of an NGO called Preda – a Catholic-based ministry that provides aftercare to children rescued from the sex trade. The story shows Preda offering unique aftercare rehabilitation to survivors of trafficking and exploitation, which it facilitates, as stated by Preda through:
“Helping them heal by encouraging them to cry out their pains through emotional expression therapy. The deeply buried emotional pain and suffering they hide inside is opened and brought out. The emotional pain is eased and the anger is removed and psychological healing can begin.”
Viewers may find the techniques used by Preda somewhat distressing, Destiny Rescue International Aftercare Director Renee Chopping says.
“Destiny Rescue applauds organisations working sincerely to fight against child sexual exploitation, and we acknowledge that results can be achieved using different techniques,” she says. “However, the methods portrayed by Preda as shown in this Dateline episode are not endorsed by Destiny Rescue nor do we refer any of our clients to Preda following their rescue. Our Destiny Rescue teams work diligently to ensure any referrals made to outside aftercare service providers are in alignment with our values and with the methods of trauma-informed care our specialists provide within our organisation.”
