The Dominican Republic is known for its beautiful beaches. Beaches and coral coastlines lie all along the southern coast of the island facing the Caribbean Sea. These beaches have attracted international tourists, which has brought an influx of sex tourism and trafficking. Women and children are forced into the sex trade by pimps and traffickers. The M.E.R.CY Workshop team has walked along these beaches to reach out to these women and children. Pray for this area of the Dominican Republic. Remember these women and children as you think of the beautiful beaches and coastlines of the island.
