95% of children in Southeast Asia who are institutionalized have immediate family. 45% of children who are trafficked are brought there by their families. Broken social and relational structures, as well as poverty, throw families into chaos. Parents surrender their children to trafficking and institutions because they have lost hope. With a special focus on pregnant and breastfeeding mothers the Family Rescue Project restores hope to hopeless families – before they give up their children – through weekly in home visits providing, encouragement, counseling, food support, and, most importantly, friendship in the darkness.
