The grimy streets of South Tel Aviv form the city’s epicenter for lusty crime -- a haven for illegal aliens and a dangerous place where drugs drive the streets and streetwalkers solicit on virtually every corner.

Prostitution is legal in and in this seedy part of town the ladies prowl the streets at night looking for clients. But when the dawn breaks they fade away and few care where they spend the day. Dave Fiquette does care. An American, he has set up a sanctuary in the Nave Sha’anan neighborhood where these women can rest, find a meal, clothing and most importantly, a respite from the vicious cycle of sex, drugs and abuse.
