WOMEN’S MONTH – STANDING TOGETHER AGAINST HUMAN TRAFFICKING
This Women’s month, Reebok is taking a stand against Human Trafficking by pledging 10% of all sales made during the month of August to help The Salvation Army interrupt the demand and reach the vulnerable.
Visit a Reebok store or Reebok.co.za this Women’s Month – every purchase helps to put a stop to Human Trafficking. Because every single case, is one too many.
Human Trafficking is both an urgent and important issue. Simply put, it’s the illegal trade of human beings. Where people are recruited, controlled and used for their bodies and labour. It’s modern day slavery. Traffickers use force, fraud and coercion to buy and sell women (and some men) against their will.
South Africa is a source, transit, and destination country for Human Trafficking. Typically, victims are recruited from poor, rural areas and moved to urban areas, with the promise of a better life. Only then to be subjected to sex trafficking and/or domestic servitude.
When fiery Methodist evangelist William Booth decided in 1865 that he could no longer preach the Christian Gospel to the poor and wretched of England unless he also put food into their stomachs, he probably did not imagine that the movement he started would grow into a worldwide organisation. Today, nearly 150 years later, The Salvation Army is trusted and recognised throughout the globe, providing a unique blend of evangelism and service to people in more than 127 countries through 175 languages. Our worldwide evangelical Christian church has its own distinctive governance and practice following the mainstream of the Christian faith, with articles of faith that emphasise God’s saving purposes. Booth’s simply philosophy of “Heart to God, hand to man” remains as vital and relevant in our society today as it was all those years ago, and continues to guide the work of our organisation. Our special concern for the poor, the neglected and the marginalised, and our determination to uphold social justice is motivated by our love of God.
