Dominican Republic(Mission Network News)– In the Dominican Republic, adult prostitution is legal, but it easily opens the door to a world of sex slavery. Actually, out of all the countries in the Caribbean, the Dominican Republic has the highest rate of human trafficking.
In fact, a lot of young women and girls are brought across the border from Haiti into the Dominican Republic for this reason.
It’s a sad truth that’s been encouraged by both the deep poverty in these two countries and the high tourism the Dominican Republic experiences.
Dear Reader, because of your generous support, we have received enough funds to send many audio Bibles to Iraqi and Syrian refugees displaced by ISIS in the Middle East. Many have been distributed and received with gladness. Now, as the cold winds of winter blow in, we are seeking to also meet the physical needs of the people by providing fuel-operated heaters for the refugees and their children to stay warm. Would you join us by making a donation today to this important work (James 2:16)?Please click here to send a heater to a refugee family >>
