Sak Saum Nursery

Posted on September 10, 2013

At 23 weeks pregnant with twin boys my mind is on all things baby. As I pin baby ideas to my pinterest board, look through baby magazines and browse through baby stores my natural instinct is to create the most beautiful loving environment for my sweet babies before they arrive. I feel so blessed (and relieved) that our nursery is almost ready for our boys complete with two cribs, a rocking chair, and lots of sweet decorations on the walls, shelves and bookcases. Our cabinets are full of bottles and our closet with diapers.
I cannot imagine what it would be like to feel helpless when it came to preparing a place for my child or taking care of them when they arrived. To think that there are women who have been abandoned, taken advantage of, left with nothing and no way to prepare or provide for their baby or baby on the way breaks my heart.
This is a reality for many women, but fortunately for the women in this video someone has stepped in. It is so inspiring to see the efforts of the Sak Saum staff (one of the ministries Fight for THEM helps support) making a difference in the lives of not only young women but their children as well. These women are equipped with skills to work and make money to take care of their children and lead them in a loving lifestyle so that vicious cycles of abuse, abandonment and neglect are broken.
“Even the rich are hungry for love, for being cared for, for being wanted, for having someone to call their own.” -Mother Teresa

My heart is overjoyed that these precious lives will feel loved, cared for and wanted from the very beginning.

Watch out Freedom’s coming

Watch-Out

One of the ministries we support, Sak Saum, creates jobs for women to assist in the restoration/prevention process of anti-trafficking. The women employed create beautiful bags, jewelry and accessories and sell them at events and online. For the month of August they will be partnering with an organization, The Exodus Road, to fund brothel raids. They are highlighting their ‘Freedom Wrap Watch’ this month. Each watch is $20 and $10 from every watch sold will go to fund brothel raids. With every 150 watches sold another brothel raid can be funded. Please visit http://saksaum.com/blog/ to read learn more or to order a watch!

“The Truth” a message from Jennifer Williams

Her bright blue glasses were the first thing that caught my eye. She was fast; running circles around anyone and everyone. She was beautiful; tan skin and shiny black hair. She was a daughter. A sister. A child. Unfortunately, she was a little girl who saw and experienced a very dark side of this world at a very young age. She has been a victim of sex trafficking. But having been rescued; safe at a rescue home she finally had hope. She was surrounded by love, cherished for who she was; a beautiful girl with bright blue glasses. Each and every child we came to know in Cambodia had a story. Many completely heart-wrenching. Our first drive through the busy, neon-lit streets sent our…
