Human trafficking victims get pampered through ‘Code Red' event

More than 300,000 people are victims of human trafficking here in Texas and one group hopes to help some of those victims turn their lives around. An event was held for those victims.

SAN ANTONIO - More than 300,000 people are victims of human trafficking Texas and Victory Outreach Church hoped to help some of those victims turn their lives around Saturday with their Code Red event.

Hundreds of women were welcomed in for a day of pampering which featured free manicures, haircuts, makeup, clothes, and AIDS testing.

"We reach out to the homeless, we reach out to those who are incarcerated, we reach out to the prostitutes, we reach out to the drug addicts," Lisa Luce, a human trafficking survivor said. "That's what God delivered us from."

Victory Outreach hoped to celebrate the women and show them they are not forgotten. They plan to keep in contact with the women throughout the year to continue providing them with help and resources.
