My Refuge House
In our world today, more slaves exist than ever before. While statistics about the numbers of individuals who are being held in forced bondage vary greatly, one thing is for sure: it is an international crisis that demands our attention.
11 million The number of people held captive in modern day slavery in Asia and the Pacific (TIP Report 2012)
300,000–400,000 The number of trafficked persons in the Philippines, about one-‐fourth of which are children (Philippines Today, 2007)
A Safe Place
My Refuge House is a home in Cebu, Philippines created to be a safe environment for girls who have been rescued from commercial sexual exploitation, human trafficking, and sexual abuse.
When girls are rescued, there are few places in the region that cater specifically to survivors of trafficking. My Refuge House is dedicated to providing access to the best care we can in order to effectively alleviate the trauma the girls have experienced, and to give them a hopeful future.
My Refuge House provides counseling, education, livelihood skills, and job skills training, as well as dental and medical care through qualified doctors. Many of the girls in our home come from Catholic and Protestant backgrounds and find great strength in the Bible. We offer Bible classes and a chance to worship God together.
