Women At Risk International & War Chest Boutique

“THE NEW SLAVERY… HUMAN TRAFFICKING IS THE FASTEST GROWING SEGMENT OF ORGANIZED CRIME.” – FBI
“TWO MILLION GIRLS A YEAR ARE BRUTALLY CIRCUMCISED, ONE EVERY 15 SECONDS.” – Secretary General

The awesome women from LLWC Ladies group traveled to Grand Rapids to learn more about this organization and to shop at this very special boutique. The boutique is filled with beautiful jewelry, scarves, books, designer all occasion cards, etc. that have been made by the many girls rescued and placed in safe houses in many countries.

Jen gave a tour of the Boutique, introduced us to some of their wonderful volunteers and shared with us a DVD “Unveiling the Hidden Gendercide.” We think this is something you think happens in other countries but certainly not ours. However, sadly, it is right here in our own back yard. Yes, even right here in our own County. It is something we don’t want to talk about but for these young girls having to endure the unthinkable we MUST speak out on their behalf. Our voice must be theirs. We can Help, with time – Host or attend A War Chest Party. Be part of A Prayer Circle, Talent and Treasure – visit their website to learn more: www.warinternational.org .
