Faces of Agony
The many faces of agony that Lumiere has seen is indicative of the horror and utter pathos that is the sex trade.
Is there anything you can do?
Yes. So much.
Why not sponsor the rescue of someone from the trade?
Or consider funding the education of someone who has been rescued.
Perhaps Divine Providence has led
you to read these words.
In the spirit of Lumiere,
is there anything you can do?
