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.

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:

Please continue to pray for successful high-impact capacity building sessions with justice system officials that will continue throughout all of 2019. Pray that God may guide those facilitating, grant them wisdom and the ability to communicate effectively. Also, pray that participants in these sessions will embrace the teachings and make the very real issue of sex trafficking in the Dominican Republic their issue and continue to support/join IJM in the fight against this horrendous crime.
