Because of you, 3 women rescued from trafficking will be reunited with their families.
Recently I was told a story of 8 girls being taken from the same village in India. Traffickers came in and offered money to families for “respectable jobs” for their daughters. They paid the families $70 and then whisked their daughters away to be trafficked and never heard from again. After not hearing from them for 4 months, they enlisted the help of the authorities. Miraculously all 8 girls were found! They were taken to government housing. The police determined what part of India they are from, but they are unable to offer any financial assistance to get them back home. This is where Rahab’s Rope comes in.
Rahab’s Rope works with women in India who are at risk or have been trafficked by showing God’s love in action. Many of you have purchased their product but may not have known the extent to what this ministry does. They have been asked by the government to help more women and funds are an issue. Many of the women come to the home with only the clothes on their back. Rahab’s Rope purchases clothing and toiletries for them. They purchase either a bus or train ticket for them and 2 staff members to get her home. All this costs about $250/woman.
In 2021, The Marketplace launched the Artisan Project to help fund projects of various ministries around the world. When you “Round it Up” when you check out on our website in 2021, these funds go to this project. You can also donate to the Artisan Project. What some of you might not know is that we are a nonprofit. Honestly, we are more of a ministry than a store. Because of your generosity, we have donated $750 to help 3 women rescued from trafficking be reunited with their families. We can only do this because of you. Thank you so much for capturing our vision and for being the hands and feet of Jesus. I knew there was a good reason why I really liked you guys!
