Imagine if your daughter went to the local town to find some casual work and ended up being held hostage, gang raped by four men then being forced to work as a prostitute and if she refused to do the work, she was gang raped until she submitted.
That’s a real story from one of the children that the charity Destiny Rescue have saved.
Marc Nuss tells us about how he and other men work undercover in seven countries, pretending they’re ‘Dirty Johns’, searching out children, gaining their trust and then rescuing them, giving them their destiny back
Today's Guest: Marc Nuss
Marc Nuss is a Partnership Manager for Destiny Rescue.
Marc has carried a deep interest and compassion for the underprivileged and vulnerable for most of his life.
Having three daughters (and a son) of his own, and experiencing first hand the plight of young women caught in human trafficking, he is passionate about his role in Destiny Rescue and is determined to make a difference.
Destiny Rescue is a Not-for-Profit organisation started in Australia over 18 years ago and is dedicated to fighting the trafficking and sexual exploitation of children in seven nations.
Their highly trained agents run covert and raid rescue operations, day and night to locate and rescue children being used and abused.
With the ongoing support of generous donors, Destiny Rescue has successfully liberated over 5,200 individual victims of human trafficking.
They have been instrumental in the closing of many bars, clubs and brothels known to be targeting children for sex work, and have seen numerous perpetrators prosecuted.
Their tireless work has also helped keep hundreds more young ones from entering the sex trade through various local community prevention programs and delivered justice and care for those who have been rescued.
