A Lethbridge established non-profit group dedicated to rescuing victims of human trafficking just opened a new shelter in Mexico. Not4Sale has been around for 14 years and was spearheaded by Joy-Lynn Stickel of Parallel Church. She says they’ve been rescuing young girls from the sex trade as young as three-years-old.
Stickel says Mexico was chosen for their shelter because of how rampant the issue is there.
However, Not4Sale Manager Tanisha Stromberg says the organization is hoping to open shelters in Canada as well.
“We’ve seen and have been a part of rescues already here, but over the next year we really want to work on setting up homes and resources here in Canada so that people can get the help that they need,” says Stromberg.
