SquareHue was intentionally created with the purpose of funding organizations that are changing the world. Every month we get an update from The A21 Campaign. Below is our latest update.
We thought it only appropriate to pass along the great news to you, our community of subscribers, because without you we really would not be part of these accomplishments!
So thank you to all of our current and past members. Together we are making an impact!
Every single day, survivors are rescued and receive the help they need after being trafficked because YOU have made the decision to invest regularly into the work of A21. In the past seven days, we have seen FOUR victims of human trafficking set free!
Here are two of their stories. As you read, know that you are a part of the greater story of freedom.
Jon* is a 19-year-old male who has been rescued from labor exploitation. When a death in the family forced him to become the breadwinner, he took a job that he found online. Upon arrival, he faced brutality from his employers and was forced to endure extreme work conditions. He was frequently beaten for working too slowly and was left with almost nothing when the job ended. The A21 Ukraine team is honored to provide practical and psychological support to this young survivor.
Natalie*, a refugee, has escaped her trafficker and is now free! After being promised a great job overseas, she arrived only to have all of her possessions and documents taken from her, and she was forced to service men in a local brothel. She saw a chance to escape, ran for her life, and is now FREE!
Thank you today and every day for making their freedom stories possible.
*Survivor photos have been changed for their protection.You are receiving this email because you are an A21 monthly partner.
Human trafficking fuels the growth of organized crime, undermining health, safety, security, and the basic needs of humanity. It is the fastest growing crime in the world. But there are organizations out there like The A21 Campaign and a host of others making a huge impact!
