Robin's Mission to Nicaragua 2016
Organized by: Robin Lewis
EVENT DATE Jul 10, 2016
Last year I was able to go to Nicaragua because of your generosity. I am heading back this year to continue the work our team began.
Again we will be teaching women crafts and skills that will help them to make a living since their escape from sex trafficking or prostitution. For the children of these women and others who are impoverished, we will give them an opportunity to express themselves through art and play...just like regular kids should. Think back to some of your favorite childhood memories. Imagine having no fond memories of your childhood. What if instead, all you had were nightmares of abuse and being forced to have sex? Tragically that is the reality for thousands of children in Nicaragua.
60% of human trafficking victims in the Western hemisphere are from Nicaragua.
I am partnering with two organizations in Nicaragua:
• House of Hope is a vocational rehabilitation program for women leaving the world prostitution and human trafficking.
• ONE by ONE is a ministry that serves children and teens, many of whom live in poverty, and are at risk or victims of abuse and exploitation.
First, I am asking for your prayers for myself and for our team, that we can safely and effectively carry out our work during our time in Nicaragua.
Finally, I need your financial support in order to fulfill this mission. Any amount, from $10 or more, will be greatly appreciated. Just click the link at the top right of this page. It will take you just a few seconds to make a lasting impact on a nation that needs your support. Thank you, in advance, for your generosity.
