Mission

The MAREA Foundation supports ministries for children and teens coming out of sex and human trafficking as well as drug trafficking. These organizations are designed for the victims of these unimaginable circumstances to provide the support that is so desperately needed to rebuild their lives. The MAREA Foundation brings awareness to the reality of drug/sex/human trafficking and gains support through donations to accomplish the above. Raising funds and awareness from all over the world allows The MAREA Foundation to successfully assist in rescuing these young victims. The MAREA Foundation believes passionately in fighting for these children’s rights so that they may be able to walk in freedom and into their destinies that God has planned for them.

MAREA Foundation also supports existing ministries and start ups. We thank you for your support.
