Filipino Orphans in Danger of Kidnapping, Abduction and Being Sold into Sexual Slavery

Fr Shay Cullen, Preda Ministries, Manila, reports in the Manila Times that there is a great danger that orphaned children or children separated from their parents could well be kidnapped and sold into sexual slavery. In the Philippines, Typhoon Haiyan is called Yolanda.
Fr. Shay Cullen

Besides the thousands that have been killed, injured, and made homeless by the most devastating typhoon known to humankind, the orphaned children are the most vulnerable. 

Their towns and villages and homes are no more and their parents are dead. They are threatened by malnutrition, kidnapping, and abduction.

Horrible as this prospect is, it has been a deadly reality in times of natural disasters.

These children need our special attention and direct intervention to save them from child traffickers and pedophiles. 

Under the pretext of saving the children, traffickers can abduct them and sell them as “brides” to pedophiles or earn hundreds of thousands of pounds or euros by providing these children for illegal adoption and even worse, sexual abuse and exploitation.

Let us join in prayer that God would protect these poor children with natural and supernatural protection against those who mean them harm.

The Philippine Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) has called for urgent vigilance by aid workers to this form of child trafficking in the areas devastated by the most powerful typhoon in history to hit land. Called Haiyan or by its local name “Yolanda,” it has devastated and flattened entire towns, villages, and killed scores of people in the central Philippines. Their children will be known as the lost children of Yolanda.
