On May 24th, Compassion First assisted law enforcement in the rescue of three minor girls from a Sorong, Papua brothel pub. Each of the girls have entered into our care. This recent activity follows Compassion First's law enforcement training in partnership with Oregon's Portland Police Bureau.
In April, training efforts were led by Sergeant Mike Geiger, the head of Portland's Anti-Trafficking Unit and was also joined by Todd Tumbleson, legal attaché for the FBI in Jakarta. Since attending the training seminars, Indonesian police have rescued a total of ten victims of sex trafficking.

Our efforts are empowering Indonesian law enforcement officials to conduct intervention activities and rescues. We are, in small increments, changing the human trafficking landscape of Indonesia.
Thank you for your continued support, Mike Mercer, President
