In an effort to help local churches and individual believers become equipped to help the community in general address this issue and take steps to help end modern-day slavery, this article provides links to resources that will enable you to become aware of the many issues related to the exploitation of human beings, our brothers and sisters.
Through an initiative called Project HELP, WMU has identified a social and moral issue and tied in national projects that help lead the church to address it. Since the launch of Project HELP in 1994, WMU has focused on a variety of universal problems ranging from hunger and poverty to HIV/AIDS and racial injustice. With each issue, the focus has been to raise the level of awareness and provide practical approaches anyone can implement to open the door for meeting needs and sharing the gospel.
During 2010-14, Project HELP is exploring a condition of the human spirit that has been around for ages — the misuse of our relationships with other people.
The definition chosen by WMU for human exploitation is the unethical, selfish use of human beings for the satisfaction of personal desires and/or profitable advantage.
