Due to the COVID pandemic, our ability to minister has been diminished, however many are still desperate for basic daily needs, as well as birth certificates. We encourage your giving as we will take action as soon as travel and interaction open back up. Our team on the ground is ready to move as funds become available to begin this important work to reduce vulnerability to slavery and human trafficking.
Charlie has been able to schedule his move to the Geneva, Switzerland area, just over the border in more affordable France, so he can interact at the United Nations serving under his consultative status for the prevention of human trafficking and slavery. He plans to move in August 2020. Our hope is we can plan a trip to Indonesia by the end of 2020 or early 2021 to launch the next smart car - if funding and the pandemic allow.
Charlie recently returned from Indonesia and experienced great success in helping provide birth certificates for children living in rural communities who might not otherwise have access to education and other tools that help prevent risk to slavery and trafficking.
We are working on expanding this project to reach further into Indonesia's Island communities where travel is difficult and many more are waiting for documentation.
Through the purchase of smart car vans, we can take legal volunteers, teachers and health trainers to these rural communities to increase their opportunities for a better future. Our hope is to establish a long term relationship with the community leaders, engaging them further toward sustainable development for their villages.
Please consider helping this truly underserved population! Your gifts WILL impact lives.
