Freedom is the right of every human being and is a cause we must all fight for!

Our hope is to awaken the churches and create awareness about those around the world who are in bondage and about those who are fighting modern day slavery.
There are more then 27 million slaves in the world today. More then any other point in human history.

Who are the Traffickers?
Traffickers include those who recruit, transport, harbour, obtain, and exploit victims, often using force, threats, lies, or other physical and psychological methods of control. They can be foreign nationals and/or local citizens, males and females, family members, intimate partners, acquaintances, and strangers.
Based on an analysis of human trafficking cases that have been identified, examples of potential traffickers include:
- Intimate partners/family members
- Gangs and criminal networks
- Brothel and fake massage business owners and managers
- Growers and crew leaders in agriculture
- Labour brokers
- Employers of domestic servants
- Small business owners and managers
- Large factory owners and corporations
Traffickers lure victims into exploitative situations often by preying on their hopes to improve their lives and the lives of their families. They often promise a chance for a better life – a good job, a loving relationship, or new and exciting opportunities. In other cases, traffickers kidnap victims and use physical and psychological violence to control them, forcing them into labour or commercial sexual exploitation.
