Currently there are more than 4.5 million people enslaved in human sex trafficking and each human is valued at about $72. The Round Home, a ministry of LOVE 146 is an organization in the Philippines, it's design facilitates the holistic healing of young girls who are victims of human sex trafficking. They use God's love and Word to not only heal the girls from their pain but also continues to support them throughout their lives.The physical structure of The Round Home is circular to heavily emphasis on how there are no sharp edges in the behavior of their caregivers. The Round Home is equipped with a tree house for therapy sessions, a volleyball court for activities, and even a punching bag used to release aggression. The Round Home ensures that each child is cared and well provided for. They instill hope in the lives of the hopeless and effect healing and restoration. Love 146 enables the child to come full circle and helps them realize their innate worth.
With your support this years' Gracepoint 5/10K Fun Walk/Run event will raise funds to support The Round Home's 2016 educational budget. In addition to this effort the Fun Walk/Run event will also support local charities with the funds raised. Thank
