Child Rescue New Zealand marks UN International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women – 25 November 2019
The UN describes violence against women and girls (VAWG) as one of the most widespread, persistent and devastating human rights violations in our world today remaining largely unreported due to the impunity, silence, stigma and shame surrounding it.
Child Rescue New Zealand recognises that this violence manifests itself in physical, sexual and psychological forms, including:
child sexual abuse, forced marriage,
human trafficking (slavery, sexual exploitation)
Child Rescue helps women who feel called to do something about human trafficking.
In its work with Destiny Rescue, Child Rescue NZ funds rescues from sexual exploitation, labour exploitation, forced marriage, temple prostitution, and border trafficking.
Read the story of how our border agents have rescued 150 individuals in the past year, (on average 3 each week). Because of the determination of local, college-educated women with a passion for justice they choose to serve their own communities and use their training to rescue women and girls from human trafficking.
Join a team visit and learn how you can make a difference for women and girls across the world.
THANK YOU for your interest in supporting Child Rescue financially. Together, we can help free children that have been bound, restore those that have been wounded and provide a safer world for them to grow up and live in.
