The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim release to the captive and recovery of sight to the blind, to let the oppressed go free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor
— Luke 4:18-19

The Church of the Nazarene is active in many areas where people are vulnerable to human trafficking. Nazarene Compassionate Ministries (NCM) supports church-led anti-trafficking efforts.

Your Freedom Offering changes lives! On Freedom Sunday, you can give to the Freedom Offering.

By giving to the Freedom Offering, you are choosing to support church-led ministries offering hope and freedom to survivors of human trafficking, as well as the prevention of trafficking of at-risk youth and children. Nazarene Compassionate Ministries currently supports ministries that include: 

Moldova Mobile Intervention Clinic

In Moldova, a Nazarene church-run mobile clinic actively seeks to help women and girls who are victims of sexual exploitation. The clinic provides in-depth medical care, support, and help finding vocational opportunities. 

Assessment in the Philippines 

In the Philippines, a short-term, residential assessment center is providing a safe place for children who are rescued from online sexual exploitation. There, children receive counseling, support, and help finding a safe, permanent home. 

Open Door Foundation

In Romania, the Open Door Foundation, a residential shelter provides counseling, medical care, legal assistance, vocational training, protected house, and pastoral care for survivors of trafficking
