Vietnam is both a source and a destination for the human trafficking of men, women, and children. Several countries including China, Cambodia, Thailand, Malaysia, South Korea, and the United Kingdom receive Vietnamese people who are victims of trafficking. These people then fall victim to sexual and labor exploitation. Vietnam is also a destination for children trafficked into the sex industry.
The causes of human trafficking in Vietnam are vast. Many people fall into false marriages; others are looking for a way out of a situation of poverty or inability to find work. Lack of awareness and a low education level also contribute to the dire situation of human trafficking in Vietnam.
Prayer Requests For Trafficking Victims
Pray for the victims of human trafficking to escape their lives of slavery and be able to recover emotionally and physically. Also, pray that the victims and perpetrators in the trafficking industry will change forever through the gospel of Christ.
