Prayer List: Health Hazards at the 2016 Olympics


Health hazards abound at the 2016 Summer Olympics. The Boston Globe reports, “With up to half a million visitors set to descend on the city for the Games, keeping them healthy could be a big job. Officials are preparing to treat an estimated 20,000 people during the Games.”

Sex trafficking of young girls is also rampant along the BR-116 highway which passes near the Olympic village. According to The Daily Telegraph, “female children are sold for sex often by their own families” at the truck stops along the “Highway of Death”.
