About Damascus Road

image68

  

Damascus Road was founded in 2009 and is dedicated to fighting the evil of human trafficking and sexual exploitation. We are committed to bring awareness through educating, restoring and empowering the abused, and advocating for the prevention and abolition of human trafficking.


Damascus Road is 100% trained volunteer run, and 100% funded by your generous donations.


“Every day we wake up in a battle.

Some days we inflict heavy losses against our enemy,

but some days we suffer heavy losses.

If you don’t know or care

about the battle,

then by default, you are losing.”
