Flooding in the Philippines
THIS JUST IN: Major flooding in the Philippines has caused many people to evacuate their homes and seek alternative shelter. Our rescue teams are helping to aid over 7,000 displaced people in the immediate area to provide supplies, food, and shelter. Did you know that natural disasters leave women and children particularly vulnerable to traffickers? Often they are left with no food, no home and sometimes unable to locate family members. Traffickers take this opportunity to go into displacement camps and take vulnerable children, often without a trace. From, rescue, to rehabilitation and to reintegration our Unlikely Heroes teams are on the ground every step of the way to prevent the future trafficking of innocent victims.
