World Concern fights child trafficking with annual S.O.S. 5k in Shoreline

Tuesday, May 7, 2019

World Concern’s 11th annual S.O.S. (Seek Out and Stop trafficking) 5k, 19303 Fremont Ave N Shoreline 98133, Saturday, May 11, 9am expects 1000 runners

Extreme poverty leaves many children in Southeast Asia alone and defenseless, making them primary targets for sexual exploitation and human trafficking.

In Nepal, a family’s oldest daughter was lured with false promises of a well-paying job in India. Sadly, she has likely been sold into the sex industry. And now their younger daughters are in danger from the same trafficker.

World Concern works to prevent the trafficking, exploitation, and abuse of children by operating a hotline for reporting suspected cases of child endangerment, educating children and parents about the dangers of trafficking, and equipping them with job skills to earn income safely.

On Saturday, May 11, more than 1,000 people will run in World Concern’s annual S.O.S. 5k to Seek Out and Stop trafficking and raise awareness and funds to fight child trafficking.

“World Concern’s work with children is driven by the fact that the most vulnerable in our world need our protection, particularly our children,” Nick Archer, Vice President of World Concern said. 
“Millions of children remain vulnerable to trafficking due to circumstances beyond their, or even their families, control.”

The public is invited to join World Concern’s S.O.S 5k on May 11 to help put an end to this horrific crime against the world’s most vulnerable children.
