International Justice Mission​ is a global organisation with a plan to eliminate the slave trade everywhere.​

IJM staff partner with local authorities to protect the poor from violence in 17 communities throughout the developing world in Cambodia, the Philippines, Thailand, Ghana, Kenya, Uganda, the Dominican Republic, Bolivia, Guatemala and South Asia.
We, at St Dionis, specifically support the Dominican Republic office.

IJM investigators, lawyers and social workers intervene in individual cases of abuse in partnership with state and local authorities in the countries in which they work. They work together to rescue victims, restrain criminals from hurting others, and restore survivors to safety and strength. Working in partnership with government authorities is the best long-term strategy to ensure that the poor are protected from violence.

Please join with us to pray for the work of IJM, in the Dominican Republic and worldwide.

Praise God for...

Give thanks for Clayton and Ellen Kershaw (from the Los Angeles Dodgers), who, as part of their partnership with IJM, visited our Dominican Republic office to help bring an end to sex trafficking of children. They met with local government officials, local partners and survivors. They also used their platform in the US to shine a light on this issue and ESPN recently released a clip about their visit.

IJM prayer update from the DR Field Office:

An exciting month for our team in the Dominican Republic. We recently launched an 8-session workshop focused on increasing local capacity to provide aftercare services to child survivors of sex trafficking and sexual exploitation. Please pray for our team as we collaborate with UNICEF and CONANI (The Dominican Child Welfare Agency) to provide this critical training. Pray also for all participants to put the content into practice to ensure that survivors are healing properly!

Please pray for strength and peace for the interns and fellows who have been deployed to our IJM DR field office. In particular, please pray for smooth travel logistics and stamina as they adjust to a new context and culture. Ask God to work in and through them and that they would experience His sustaining and transformative Spirit during their posts.
