Blair Corbett, Missionary to Abused + Trafficked Children

Ark of Hope Blog & News
Category: Events

I am a missionary to those traumatized and victimized as children by human trafficking and severe childthumb Blair2015 1 abuse. Having founded our non-profit, Ark of Hope for Children, years ago I could not fathom how God would be moving now. Partnering with me through prayer and financial means we can change lives that once had no hope, and here is how.

Years ago we began reaching out via the internet to those who may be suffering in silence and fear after being victimized by child abuse and what is now known as child trafficking. Personal tragedies befell us but they started coming anyhow, so we knew God was in it. From across the U.S., England, South America, Canada, Australia and more.

I take no income from our nonprofit as expenses to keep our sites online, while preparing for more survivors to be brought to our transitional living facility continue. We are preparing to journey to another state to hopefully bring as many as a dozen recently rescued, sex trafficked and exploited boys for long term care at our facility. Even so, on any given day, I am personally assisting from three to eight young rescued victims from four to twelve or more hours daily. As their mentor and Survivor’s Coach we work closely together every day.

2017 A Look Back for Ark of Hope

With the arrival of Christmas 2017 Ark of Hope for Children wishes to express our deep gratitude to our many followers, volunteer supporters, advocates and of course the survivors that have trusted us. I cannot truly express how humbled I am by your level of care and patience with us during the past year. This year I…. WE hit severe compassion fatigue (burnout) after doing this for 20+ years and heavily online since 2008 when we began assisting survivors of child trafficking and child abuse online. Following the suicide of one teen and rejection of support by another, I spent a good portion of this year feeling as if I could not find words that could help others when I struggled at times to help myself. Yet you stood by us.

Crumbling finances took their toll as well.

How to Support a Bullied Child

Ways to help support, deal with, and overcome bullying

Guest post by Carl McLean of Serious Parenting.

According to the U.S. Department of Justice, 160,000 kids per day do not attend school for fear of being bullied. This is a terribly sad statistic. These children live in a state of fear and dread of the physical, verbal, and mental aggression they face each day.

HOW DOES BULLYING AFFECT A CHILD

Those who do attend school go around in a chronic state of anxiety and depression. The long-term effects of bullying and living in this state of mind of anxiety and depression can be catastrophic to a child. If they are left in this toxic environment, it will affect them; possibly for the rest of their lives.

Prolonged exposure to bullying can have detrimental effects on a child’s self-esteem and their ability to trust. They can have trouble forming good relationships and are at a higher risk for substance abuse.

We all need to take an active role in preventing bullying. Sometimes, recognizing a bully is easy but there are other times when it may be less obvious.

Operation Extrteme Care

Ark of Hope for Children has a super volunteer and mentee that once aged-out of foster care and has been helping others ever since. While focusing on how to help other foster and once abused youth with how to age out with success, he enlisted in the military. Now a ranking officer in a war zone he is still only thinking of others and continues to help Ark of Hope from afar as he can.

He has been so supportive of our efforts, that when he reached about most of his “group” not getting care packages from home that Ark of Hope jumped on it. We have launched Operation Extreme Care and we need your $5 to $10 care packages rushed to us, so we can rush them to 80+ enlisted troops in an active war zone that need encouragement and moral boosts from home. No matter what your stance, let’s support these men AND women!
