Run Against Trafficking & Myanmar Relief
The Run Against Trafficking (R.A.T. Race / www.runagainsttraffficking.org) mission is to raise funds for organizations working to end sex trafficking in Arizona and Southeast Asia. These organizations provide needed services to victims of sex trafficking, advocate for tougher laws against perpetrators, educate the community and raise public awareness.
The R.A.T Race is overseen by Community Ministries International, a 501 (c) (3) non-profit in Tempe, Arizona, dedicated to providing support to unique ministries.
Myanmar Rescue Home and Disaster Relief
There is a widespread tragedy unfolding in Myanmar following cyclone Komen. So far the reports are 88 deaths and 330,000 homeless. The flood waters are still rising in the Delta region. The need is great also because we know that traffickers are actively recruiting and stealing women and young children during times of confusion and starvation.
The dangers of trafficking during natural disasters is real. We are trying to raise $20,000 to feed 6 villages until things are safer and resettlement can begin.
