What We Do

Restore the abused

Rescuing a child is just the first step toward recovery. The journey that follows requires much healing and restoration – rebuilding a life emotionally, mentally, spiritually and physically.

Millions of children today are enslaved in the sex trade or have been sexually exploited worldwide. Each child has a story that reveals the damaging effects of sexual abuse. Some children are fortunate to be rescued after only a short time in the industry, while others are trapped for years. Despite the amount of time spent in a brothel or an abusive situation, these children are broken and wounded and need healing and unconditional love.

Child Rescue's mandate is to see these children healed and restored from their past abuse.

The Bible, in Isaiah chapter 61, verses one to three, says, “the Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is upon me, for the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to comfort the brokenhearted and to proclaim that captives will be released and prisoners will be freed. He has sent me to tell those who mourn that the time of the Lord’s favour has come, and with it, the day of God’s anger against their enemies. To all who mourn in Israel, he will give a crown of beauty for ashes, a joyous blessing instead of mourning, festive praise instead of despair.”

Child Rescue is uniquely equipped and qualified to help bring healing and wholeness to these children, making them smile again. They have a chance to dream and fulfil their destinies.

Rescue is the first step to a life of freedom. We offer a range of reintegration services to help survivors stay free. Reintegration teams work alongside rescue teams providing individualised support and solutions to the children we rescue.

Our reintegration is: individualised, culturally relevant, family-centric, trauma-informed, future-focused. We work to identify what left a child vulnerable to exploitation then provide opportunities for her and her family to overcome and thrive.

Residential Care: Children come to live in a Child Rescue, or like-minded organisations*, reintegration home.

Community Care: This is a community-based program to help children return safely home, supported with follow-up visits and assistance from a caseworker.

*Government officials handle reintegration placements after raid operations.

 

Every life is worthy of freedom. We are blessed to be able to rescue boys, girls and adults. To best serve, restore and empower all of these brave individuals, not every person who we save comes into our care. For example, when we rescue boys we currently do not have homes that are suited to care for boys, so we coordinate with a like-minded organization who is better equipped to care for their unique needs.

After Rescue

What happens after rescue varies depending on the rescue situation and the needs of the child.

  • Whenever possible, rescued children receive individualised services through our reintegration programs in residential or community care.
  • In certain rescue situations, the government authorities manage a child’s reintegration placement. In some cases, they assign children into our care or of a like-minded organisation.
  • When we rescue boys or individuals with specialised needs, we facilitate their placement with one of our partner homes or other like-minded organizations as our reintegration facilities are set up to care for only girls.

Residential Care

Our reintegration homes are set up to meet the daily needs of rescued children and help them step into a bright future.  This care varies depending on location and could include:

– Language classes

– Life-skills training

– Trauma-informed counseling

– Discipleship class

– Health education

– Vocational training

– Higher education

– Job searching and acquisition

Community Care

A healthy family is an ideal environment for a child to thrive. Our caseworkers assess the child’s living situation before deciding for community care.

If the home passes multiple reviews, a child can return to their family or a relative instead of living in one of our reintegration homes. Children still maintain consistent contact with a caseworker and follow individualized care plans. In community care, Destiny Rescue provides unique services for a child’s situation, such as:

 

– Educational scholarships to attend school

– Financial assistance for specialized needs

– In-person visits, video calls or phone calls from their caseworker

– The chance to attend events in our nearby reintegration homes (discipleship, health education and more!)

– Vocational training

– Higher education

– Job searching and acquisition

A proper education and vocational training are key components for successful reintegration back into society.

Proper education and vocational training are key components for successful reintegration back into society. These tools will help equip these young adults to earn a good living and become self-sufficient, keeping them safe from a life of sexual exploitation.

Like all of us, children need unconditional love. At Child Rescue, we go out of our way to make every child feel loved, valued and esteemed.

Because of all our faithful supporters, we’re able to bring freedom, hope and restoration to hundreds of children once enslaved in the sex-trade industry.
