Region 8 learns how to help children affected by modern-day slavery

Posted: Updated:

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) – Even though it's on the other side of the globe people in Region 8 students at Arkansas State University are working to encourage the community to help rescue children trapped in slavery.

Members of the Lambda Chi Alpha Fraternity are raising awareness about the issue. On Monday, they taught community members more about "Connor's Song".

It's an organization that provides art and play therapy for children rescued from slavery. Luke Guenrich with Lambda Chi said there's one specific reason he's volunteering with his fraternity.

"Something that really encouraged me was an opportunity to give back to those around the community", said Guenrich. "We want to really to give to the community as brothers and give back to people less fortunate because we have been blessed in our life".

Members of "Connor's Song" were also on hand to talk about the specific services they provide. They said with Region 8's help they can provide therapy centers like the one they built in Ghana, Africa.
