BREAKING NEWS: Police Intervention and Rescue

Earlier this month Indonesian police intercepted the transport of three North Sulawesi girls (two of them underage).  The apprehension took place just prior to the victims being moved to another island.  The perpetrators were arrested and the victims were taken into protective custody. The police made contact with the CF care team as the rescue took place.

CF social workers assisted the police in screening and interviewing the victims. The youngest, whose parents were unreachable at the time of the rescue, had been previously trafficked and there were reports of neglect and physical abuse. She was referred to CF care and the older two were able to return to their homes.

As a result of the rescue, the two underage girls are receiving CF aftercare services. There have now been a total of 13 rescues since CF and the Portland Police Bureau's partnered police training in North Sulawesi. The intervention has also informed specific needs in future law enforcement training efforts toward a greater understanding of child protection laws and police jurisdiction, specifically in trafficking cases.

This work cannot be done without you! Please consider making a contribution or monthly pledge in support of the new clients and to further CF's police training initiative! 

For the sake of others,
