For a long time, Chinda was trapped working in the sex industry in Thailand. But today Chinda is a changemaker.

That’s because CMS local partner Helen showed her compassion and lovingly guided her towards Jesus.

Chinda bravely left sex work and has now joined Helen in helping more women discover the love of Jesus and find freedom from this cruel, dehumanising industry.

You can also be a changemaker like Chinda and Helen.

  • £10 could help people like Chinda to learn new skills and discover a new future with Jesus

No one out of reach

Thanks to generous supporters like you, Chinda found freedom from the pain and shame of sex work.

Now she is reaching out to others who think they are beyond saving.

Chinda started by helping Helen deliver food to local women and talking with them.

In Chinda, these women see someone who was once like them, who understands their suffering. They see a glimmer of hope.

If Chinda can find freedom, maybe they can too?

Newfound confidence

Thanks to Chinda’s newfound confidence in Christ, it wasn’t long before she started taking on more responsibility.

Together, Helen and Chinda started a new project that provides alternative employment for struggling women.

There are now 16 women in Chinda’s care, who are receiving a fair wage, food provisions, health care, skills training and Bible studies.

Helen told us: “Chinda has been a great influence in the lives of these women. She was the first to get her driving licence and sign up for school to get her diploma. We now have a total of six women waiting to start school this October!”

Shame becomes hope

Amazingly, the owner of the bar where Chinda used to sell herself now helps with the project too!

What was once a place of shame has turned into a place of hope, with women meeting there for prayer every week.

Isn’t it remarkable how one changed life can make such a difference to so many others?

That’s why we need you to support local partners like Helen today.

You can add another chapter to wonderful stories like this.
