Pearls of Great Price Coalition
Posted By: Vicki Harkey (August 5, 2020)
COVID-19 has changed the landscape of our lives. Many are at more risk of human trafficking(HT) as a result. Pearls of Great Price Coalition (Pearls) remains steadfast in our efforts to educate the public about HT and in supporting those who have escaped their traffickers.
Pearls gifted the survivors at Sanctum house with outdoor games, wading pools, and gently used bicycles. These gestures of love provide some sense of freedom and normalcy in this time of isolation. We’ve also provided support through food donations and payment toward utilities.
Emergency funds and survivor support has also been sent to Sparrow Freedom Project to help those who have recently escaped the slave trade and are living in desperate situations.
Our education has shifted to an online focus, where we have presented our first webinar and continue to post informative articles and survivor testimonies on social media.
COVID won’t stop our work to fight HT!
