Wherever we are, in whatever country, we must help those in need. Especially, those of us living in wealthier western nations, we can lift much more than our own weight. It is a disgrace to see so many fat Americans and Australians watching TV and doing nothing to help new migrants and refugees in their countries. What is wrong with these people and what has gone wrong with our societies? Why is it all me, me, me? Where is the good Samaritan? Helping another human being is far more satisfying than gratifying oneself through meaningless entertainment.

In particular, we could all be helping vulnerable immigrants improve their futures. If we really try we can help find jobs for women in vulnerable positions and allow them to transition from low paid and exploitative jobs. Or, from degrading and exploitative positions, as in the case of those forced into prostitution. It is the responsibility of Christians to help those that are in need, there should be no discrimination against who-ever requires help … Jesus helped Mary Magdalene, who some think might have been a sex worker herself.

Helping Vulnerable Female Immigrants Improve Their Futures

I do not wish to harp on about those unfortunate women who find themselves forced by economic necessity to turn to involvement in the commercial sex industry, but they must know that there are those of us in this community who wish to help them. We all need to reach out and lend a helping hand, offer a smile and practical aid wherever possible. Community outreach programs, through church and government programs, are vital for these unfortunate and vulnerable members of our communities.  They must be assured that they are not alone in their time of need. There are Asian escorts, being exploited by nefarious members of their own race in this country.

I would say to all who read this missive, get up off your sofa and go out into the world and see what you can do to help. Join a church group, or a volunteer organisation, that is dedicated to helping vulnerable female immigrants improve their futures. Do something practical today, don’t put it off a moment longer, get up off the chair and walk out that door. Action speaks louder than words; help a vulnerable woman today. Imagine how good your heart will feel, knowing that you have made a real difference to the lives of these women.
