When you choose hope, anything is possible. When Eden Outreach team discovered a new red light district in the city, they were shocked at how young the girls looked.
From her hiding place behind a car, one of these young women locked eyes with a team member. Enzali had been looking for a job at the bus station when a rickshaw driver said he could employ her as a masseuse. Instead, he took her to a brothel where she was trapped for seven months. We gave her an exit strategy, stealthily wrote our phone number on some ripped paper, and sneaked it into her tiny hand.
Two days later, she called from a taxi with another trafficking victim alongside her! They received a welcome pack of new clothes and living essentials, and immediately began trauma counseling for PTSD. While hopelessness thrives in the trafficking hubs where Eden does weekly Outreach, it is also in these places that hope has the most power.
The Promises of Hope Collection was inspired by the power of hope to declare new beginnings, possibilities, opportunities, and dreams.
