A Christian humanitarian organization is urging people to give up one night of entertainment in order to help women and girls around the world trapped in “unspeakable situations” in the sex industry.
World Help, founded in 1991 with a mission to bring physical and spiritual transformation to people, recently launched its “one-night stand for freedom” drive, calling on Christians to take a pledge to give up their Friday night’s entertainment on May 19 and donate the money instead to help liberate girls forced to live as sex slaves.
Noel Yeatts, World Help’s vice president, has seen and fought firsthand for the millions of men, women, and children around the world that find themselves in modern-day slavery in her over 20 years of international experience. She shared a number of powerful personal stories in an interview with The Christian Post on Thursday.
Yeatts offered her thoughts below on why it is so important for Christians to heed Jesus’ call to stand up for the poor and defend the powerless, especially those robbed of their choices and deprived of their humanity.
