to women in prostitution in Thailand
in the Red Light is the story of Patricia Green and her work with women
in prostitution. A rose says that you are beautiful and I love you.
Mai, a young Thai woman approached me one day in a church in Bangkok
and said to me: "you don't remember, but you came into the bar where I
was a dancer and you gave me a rose and told me that God loved me. That
changed my life and was the beginning of hope for me and a new life
away from having to sell my body to foreign tourists."
in the Red Light' is the inspiring story of a New Zealand woman
who has worked for nearly thirty years with sexually exploited women.
Initially in Patpong, the infamous Red Light district of Bangkok
Thailand, reaching out with love and hope for a better future to
thousands of young Thai women and teenage girls caught up in the web of
prostitution and human trafficking.
Bangkok Patricia Green moved to Berlin Germany, where she started
a similar ministry, Alabaster Jar e.V. which offers spiritual,
emotional and practical help (and roses) to women working in street
prostitution. Many of whom are victims of human trafficking from
Eastern European countries.
