Foursquare Missionary Becky Davis serves with Compassion First. Today, thousands of men, women, and children are forced to endure unspeakable abuses by means of commercial exploitation. The overwhelming percentage of victims, mostly women and children, are trafficked into the commercial sex industry. Compassion First exists to end this slavery. At Compassion First, they provide holistic aftercare for trafficking survivors, partnered law enforcement training, safe pathways for survivors through the court system, and financial collaboration for rescues of trafficked persons. They are specifically committed to serving in countries that do not already have a strong, western non-governmental organization presence in the area of anti-trafficking work. Their flagship operation is in the nation of Indonesia. They employ western providers alongside indigenous staff, working with survivors in their care; they value and pursue genuine and supportive partnerships with like-minded, non-profit organizations and law enforcement agencies.
