DescriptionLearning ObjectivesIndividual Rates
Human trafficking is the second largest organized crime (superseded only by drug trafficking) where over a million children are trafficked annually. This multibillion-dollar industry is a major issue throughout South Africa. The presentation provides a brief history of the problem on trafficking throughout the world, but especially in Johannesburg, South Africa.
During this presentation, Dr. Anderson will apply a model for working with charities between one multicultural community church that partnered with Mama Dorah to keep fifty orphaned children fed, educated and protected from human traffickers. This intervention was intentional and well planned but not without trials. The issues faced and how they were addressed will also be discussed. Finally, a theology of caring for orphans is presented.
