Bangladesh – Support for Abused Women

August 18th, 2015
Comments Off

The Bangladesh Women Council reported that during the last six months a total of 2,070 women, girls, and children were forced into sexual exploitation and human trafficking. The report also stated, 360 girls
and children were killed by predators and 156 women committed suicide after being abused. Unfortunately, there are many more thousands that may be victims of exploitation, which continue going unreported.

BEA Gospel Workers and volunteers find these girls by collecting information from reliable
sources, such as friends and families of victims during visitations. The workers then approach
these girls and their families to share the message of HOPE, offer advice and counseling to help
these girls regain their self-esteem through financial empowerment – the self-help goat
program – provide a goat, job training such as the sewing program – provide a sewing machine,
nurse’s-assistant program to those who qualify. Also, to improve their spiritual life by inviting
them to attend fellowship meetings, Bible study, and community programs to reinstate them
with their communities.
