Saving As Many Girls As We Can

David L. Meyer – CEO Hand of Hope

There doesn’t seem to be any part of the world I travel to that is not in some way affected by the abomination of human trafficking. On a recent trip abroad, I discovered the beautiful nation of Spain was no different. Spain has a very serious problem with human trafficking – thousands of victims are trafficked to Spain from Romania, Russia, Brazil, Colombia and Nigeria and are abused every day.

The stories are so very similar, girls are lied to and deceived and end up in perilous situations. In Spain, many of these girls ultimately end up in internment centers where the conditions are far worse than any prison. We are partnering with an organization in Spain called “Fiet Gratia” to help. Staff members from Fiet Gratia (pictured) visit internment centers daily, providing girls with a basic toiletry kit, a telephone card, clean clothes and one of Joyce’s books. They also talk with each girl, pray with them and offer support and help upon their release.

What happens to some of these girls physically makes me mad. I’ve said it before, we simply have to stand up and do something about it. By God’s grace, and with your help as partners, we are doing something about it, saving as many girls as we can, not only in Spain, but around the world.
Hand of Hope is the missions arm of Joyce Meyer Ministries. Our goal is simply to help as many hurting people as we possibly can, to alleviate human suffering and to help Christians grow in their faith.
