Nepal stands in a mountainous region in South Asia between Tibet and India. While many
people know this land as one of religious significance for Hindu worshipers, and a beautiful
oasis for tourists, it is also a source country for human trafficking. A serious lack of
education coupled with poverty has caused the country’s women and children to be among
the world’s most vulnerable to traffickers. Religious and social ideals often keep back
healing and reintegration for any trafficked individuals who may have escaped the violence
of sex work.
Recently Nepal came to center stage when an earthquake shook it at the core, killing
thousands immediately and sending the entire country into chaos. As the country
responded to save those still hanging on to life, another earthquake struck, killing and
destroying even more people and property.
Nepal has shown progress recently in its religious tolerance by finally permitting Christians
to bury their dead. Let’s pray for this country and ask God what we can do.
