Eight Days of Hope (logo)A spokesman for an organization that exists to demonstrate the love and hope of Jesus Christ by serving those in need says rescued animals in America have a better shot at a second chance than people who have been rescued from trafficking.

Since its inception in 2005, Eight Days of Hope has been known for helping people rebuild their homes and their lives after national disasters. Now, spokesman Steve Tybor tells OneNewsNow God has opened the door for his organization to focus on another human disaster.

"Sex trafficking is the fastest-growing illegal activity not only in America, but the world," Tybor reports. "The rate here in the United States is staggering. Today it's estimated roughly 80,000 minors are being trafficked in the state of Texas alone."

So Eight Days of Hope is partnering with other established ministries to help renovate, build, or expand facilities that provide a safe haven for those who have been rescued from sex trafficking by mending the emotional and physical scars and also tending to spiritual needs.

Tybor

"There's 13,000 animal shelters in the United States; there's only 600 beds today that once somebody's rescued from being trafficked … they have a place they can hang out for the next six months or … two years to rebuild their life," Tybor compares.

So he believes now is the perfect season for the Church to rise up and respond to this need.

Eight Days of Hope strictly uses volunteers to do all of the construction for the restoration homes, just as the ministry does when responding to natural disasters.
