LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Each year, tens of hundreds of children, a lot of them below the age of ten, are trafficked for sex, and sadly, Las Vegas is a hub for this business.
While applications exist to assist youngsters who’re bought for sex, there are few resources for the youthful victims.
A newly formed non-profit organization known as Agape Rescues Children (A.R.C.) and has formed in Las Vegas and is holding its first fundraising occasion on Thursday.
The major objective of A.R.C. is to build and function a sanctuary for children who’re rescued from sex rings.
Staci Maione the founding father of A.R.C mentioned greater than half of the children who’re trafficked come from the foster care system or little one protecting companies, which implies returning them to the system or to their households will not be an possibility.
“Well, you know, the ones that I’m, I’m looking at are the children, unfortunately, that are sold into trafficking by their families or the families hand them over to coyotes or traffickers and you know that have no place to go. These children that have no place to go, so this would be kind of like a sanctuary for them,” Maione mentioned.
The first sanctuary can be in-built Las Vegas, however A.R.C. hopes to sometime develop its operation throughout the U.S. The fundraiser occasion is ready for Thursday from 4 pm till 6:00 at Settebello restaurant on west Sahara.
