Dao, Chanh and Fah* are three young survivor clients who were all trafficked for sex from Laos to Thailand before the age of 18.
LIFT’s Investigation Team helped to identify them as survivors of trafficking and assisted in putting their offenders in jail. Our Protect Team continues to follow up with them even years after their cases are closed to ensure they stay safe and supported in their journeys.
To continue to impact survivors, we need your help.
This holiday season, we have partnered with One Day’s Wages. They have generously offered to double gifts made up to US $15,000 from November 27 until December 31 for our LIFT Survivors Support Fund. That means when you donate on their website, you double your impact protecting and providing for survivors of sexual exploitation and trafficking.
Your gift makes freedom through justice possible for other men, women and children like Dao, Chanh and Fah.
$30,000 will provide critically needed services and support for our survivor clients. Your doubled donations will:
Partially fund our Protect Team of social workers
Buy Love Packs (sample below) for survivors at government shelters and at home
Endow a Survivor Fund that provides cash assistance to survivors of exploitation as they are repatriated and rehabilitated in their home communities
Train other caregivers
Finance case support costs

** A note - the stories sometimes refer to the “work’ these young ladies did when they were underage since that’s how they referred to it and conceived of it. LIFT believes that no child under the age of 18 can consent to sex work and, therefore, there is no such thing as a child prostitute or child sex “work”, only child victims of sexual exploitation and rape.
