COVID19 has directly and specifically contributed to a rise in human trafficking and exploitation. People are more vulnerable than ever due to job loss, lack of personal interactions in healthy relationships due to quarantine and more time online. We've seen pornography consumption increase which directly contributes to the demand for sex trafficking. Reliable resources report a rise in landlords asking for sex when someone can't pay their rent. Lighthouse for Life has directly interacted with 9 human trafficking scenarios in the past 7 weeks. That is an average of over 1 case a week and that is notably higher than our regular average.
