For quite some time now, I’ve written this blog with caution. Many times I wrote what I felt needed to be said, while holding back what I really wanted to say. After all, the reader might be a potential donor to our work and surely, I wouldn’t want to say anything that might upset or offend you. One of my main jobs as President and Founder of JOY International is to motivate people to action – especially when that action would be to give funds into our work.
Well my friends, I’m not holding back what I really feel anymore. I’m tired of beatin’ around the bush, holding my tongue and fearing that I might offend someone or get someone angry. As a matter of fact, I WANT you to get angry! If you’re not angry, then something is wrong with you. How can any human being with any sense of compassion or decency not be angry while living in a world where not just a handful, but millions of young children are being abused in the most heinous way imaginable? Where these children are forced to satisfy the sick, twisted sexual desires of the most vile men on earth. Most of these children (as young as 4 years old) will have to “service” 10 – 15 men a day – every day of their precious young lives until they no longer can. Once they are no longer “desirable” they are cast into the street like garbage or killed and discarded. Many times when thrown into the streets they’ll do the job themselves by committing suicide. Sometimes it doesn’t get to that, because they’re being abused by some animal that gets his kicks out of beating the child to death. I’m sick of it. I’m way beyond angry… and you should be too.
I’m tired of hearing all the organizations and celebrities who “talk” about child trafficking. There are hundreds of groups and people jumping on the child trafficking bandwagon like it’s some new cause to get involved with. They have no idea what they’re doing – so they just “talk” about it. It’s okay because they’re making people “aware” of the problem. They have major fundraisers where they bring in millions of dollars to make more people “aware.” They have no idea that they‘re actually hurting the rescue efforts by causing brothel owners to take the children deeper underground making it more difficult for real rescue organizations to find them. They have no idea that they’re actually increasing the demand by making predators aware of where children are available. John Walsh did an exposé that did this very thing. When I wrote to his company to inform him how he made things worse – I was completely ignored. So I stayed silent. No more silence from me. When I see injustice or a hindrance to the work we’re trying to do in getting children rescued – I’m not just going to speak about it – I’ll shout it out to make people aware of the truth. The truth hurts? Not nearly as much as the pain a child feels while being ravaged multiple times each day.
To all those organizations that are “making people aware” of the problem – please shut up and do something! Do something that will get another child out of a brothel. I know of hundreds of organizations that are talking about the child trafficking issue. I know of just a handful that are actually going deep undercover, risking their lives and at great expense to actually rescue children from their nightmare. These children do not need to be talked about – they need to be rescued. I know a major speaker to women around the world who talks about rescuing children from the brothels and child trafficking. I sat and interviewed her Director of Operations (the interview is on film) and he stated emphatically that they do NOT do rescues.
I’m tired of it my friends, because at JOY International we don’t TALK about rescuing children from the brothels – WE DO IT! We work with people and organizations that we’ve partnered with who send teams undercover into the brothels to get children rescued from their living hell. One of the undercover field operatives we work with in India was discovered, then severely beaten and hospitalized. Is he devoted to the rescue work? 3 weeks later he was back undercover – with me – in the brothels and dance bars searching for underage girls being held as slaves.
Like I said – at JOY International we don’t just talk about child trafficking and children being used a sex slaves in the brothels – we do whatever it takes to actually rescue them.
To be sure there’s no misunderstanding – I am NOT trying to recruit you to join a rescue team. Most of the team members we have are either current, former or retired police or Special Forces military. Rescuing a child is extremely dangerous and takes more than just courage – it takes unique skills.
So how can you help? Go beyond making people aware of the work of JOY. Rescue Operations are very expensive. There are travel expenses, surveillance equipment, operating expenses during the undercover investigations, after rescue expenses for the care of the rescued child including their home care, food, clothing, education, counsel, medical care and various other expenses that we cannot even share. This is one of the main reasons why so many organizations “try” doing rescues but realize the expense and dangers are simply too much.
You want to help? You want to be involved in REAL RESCUE of child sex slaves? Then give a donation to our work. You have no money? Then do a fundraiser? There are many ways to raise funds and our teams would be happy to help you.
So, if you’re a subscriber to this blog you might want to be prepared to be challenged to go the extra mile, because I’m not holding back anymore. I’m saying what needs to be said and speaking the truth about the child sex trade by telling it like it is. The lives of precious young children are at stake.
When JOY International has the funds – children get rescued from a life of pain and horror.
