After experiencing the tragic loss of her teenage son Jantsen, Pam Cope shares the story of her healing journey that led her to a life of rescuing and advocating for exploited children in Vietnam, Cambodia and Ghana. She will share some of the heart touching stories of the children who were rescued from slavery in the fishing communities along Ghana’s Lake Volta and how they are using therapeutic art programs to bring healing and hope to the children in their care. She will share how we can all be a part of creating positive change in this world through awareness and advocacy.
Pam Cope and her husband Randy are co-founder’s of the Touch A Life Foundation, a non-profit organization based in Dallas, TX, devoted to rescuing and advocating for exploited children.
