Archbishop of Canterbury backs ‘sex-workers’ charity

Posted Aug 14, 2017

[Anglican Communion News Service] Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby has given his backing to a charity set up to support women involved in the “sex industry”. Charis Tiwala works to “give people in the sex industry the opportunity for choice again; a choice to exit if they wish, and a choice to rebuild a new life as they would choose to live it,” the Archbishop’s office said in a statement.

The charity’s workers build relationships with the women through baking courses, Bible studies, Pilates classes and assistance with sexual health. Staff and volunteers visit establishments such as saunas to offer chaplaincy and befriending services and to “engage at whatever the point of need is with the utmost care and respect for each person.”

    I commend the Archbishop for supporting this effort. This is an underserved community that is to often ignored, unfairly judged or forgotten. God bless the work of this charity.
