ABOUT CATHY AND JUAN
Cathy and Juan work on behalf of the PC(USA) to combat human trafficking in the Philippines and around the world, focusing their vision on people whose dreams have been denied.
They carry a deep concern for those whose hope for a better life for themselves and their families have been dashed by human traffickers. “I pray the Lord would lead and guide us as we address migration and human trafficking by participating in God’s work to redeem economic systems of exploitation and exchange them for life-giving opportunities and education, while tending to the healing of peoples’ bodies and spirits,” Cathy says.
From their home base in Manila, Philippines, Cathy and Juan work with Asian churches and non-governmental organizations to help coordinate efforts related to the scourge of modern-day slavery.
