Hope – Cause of the Month January 2017

0

Hope – Everyone needs water, air, food, a safe place to live. Something else, a little less tangible, but so important is needed. Percy Bysshe Shelley said “Man can live about forty days without food, about three days without water, about eight minutes without air, but only for one second without hope.”  At Kosmos®, we support ministries that give hope to the hopeless, and comfort to the brokenhearted.

January is Human Trafficking Month in Houston and Redeemed Ministries is our recipient. Because they have seen and understand the problem in our community, Redeemed Ministries offers Outreach, Aftercare and Advocacy giving volunteers the opportunity to network and find their place in the fight against human trafficking and commercial sexual exploitation.

Human trafficking is modern day slavery. Victims of human trafficking are subjected to force, fraud, or coercion, for the purpose of sexual exploitation or forced labor. Victims are young children, teenagers, men and women. Human trafficking is a violation of basic human rights. Human trafficking needs to be addressed from a human rights’ perspective that centers on efforts to restore the most basic human rights of a trafficked person…their human freedom.
