ChildCry has had the privilege to work with Karen Kang in preparation and organization for the triathlon held on May 19th and in creative collaboration for our brochures. Thank you, Karen, for the time and ideas you volunteered for us! This week’s Snap is a shout-out to you as a tiny gesture of our appreciation.
Kang specializes in art therapy for victims of sex trafficking, with a focus in the aftercare for those extracted. She uses love and art as stepping stones to freedom for the broken lives caught in the cycles of hopelessness and destruction. As Kang provides a safe space in the art process and her relationship with the victims, the girls learn to use both for communicating experiences and emotions that are too traumatizing to verbalize.
Next month, Karen will be moving to Mexico City to work with El Pozo de Vida (The Well of Life - www.elpozodevida.org.mx) in their rehabilitation program for under-aged victims of sexual exploitation. Karen will live and walk beside these young girls with the heart of a mother and training of an art therapist.

Que Dios te bendiga en Mexico Karen!!
