If all refugees and displaced people formed their own country, it would be the world’s 17th-largest nation.

“Every three seconds, someone is newly displaced in the world because of war, violence, and persecution,” World Mission’s Greg Kelley says.

Millions of women and children fleeing conflict make ideal targets for traffickers. Aid groups in Europe say pimps try to lure and deceive women fleeing the Ukraine crisis.

“At the end of the day, it’s about people making money, which is horrific when you think about how cheaply they (c) treat humanity, and they prey on those who are most vulnerable,” Kelley says.

“You can’t find a better example [of vulnerable people] than those in a refugee or a displaced situation.”
