Everyone Plays a Part in Blanketing Nations in Freedom

“This is the most exciting report I have ever written...in my whole life,” Kim Westfall, Founder of Uncaged wrote to the Board in February 2024 after a trip to Romania. “You

have heard me say that Uncaged’s mission is to rescue and restore the lives

of traffic survivors and blanket nations in anti-trafficking strategies. The

truth is I had no idea what that meant or how we could ever accomplish it.”

The “how” is becoming clear in the months since as partnerships form, doors swing open, and God provides a way for Uncaged to work together with people at the highest levels of government in Romania. When we began installing video monitors in key locations last year, the message of human trafficking prevention began to spread rapidly across the country. 


We continue with a phased approach, starting in the 8 largest cities in Romania. We are targeting key locations to bring awareness and saving knowledge to millions of people: airports, train stations, subways, hospitals, post offices, borders, and ports. Your support enables us to install monitors, develop signage, train first responders and the general public, and empower Romanians to protect their own communities.


The progress does not stop there, however! In February, members of our team met with members of government offices and organizations. Everyone was excited about the strong foundation of trauma-informed care we’ve built at The Sanctuary for survivors of human trafficking. They’re ready to join us in getting awareness out across the country and in getting survivors to safety and healing.


  • The Transportation Minister continues to be one of our most passionate advocates and is doing everything he can to give us opportunities to reach millions of people a day with our message of prevention. 


  • The Prime Minister’s Chancellor on Trafficking is extremely excited about our relationship and has connected us to the new leader of the government’s anti-trafficking arm.


  • The Postmaster is an enthusiastic young man ready to work together to utilize their resources for prevention. With 5000 locations nationwide and 17,000 employees, we could potentially train, the Post Office is a key partner in blanketing the nation with freedom! 


  • The Minister of Health is also offering exciting opportunities. Romania has 350 hospitals nationwide. The Minister of Health has connected with our team about outfitting these hospitals with video monitors and signage to educate people.  We would have the opportunity to train their staff who interact with 1.2 million people every month! This is major news and we wouldn’t be able to do it without your help!

Romanians are aware that their country needs them. Citizens are working day and night in conjunction with anti-trafficking organizations like our team to put an end to human trafficking in their communities. Government officials are giving us support and doors are opening every day. 


The desire and effort to eradicate human trafficking and bring healing to survivors is blossoming into Romanians working hand in hand to protect their people. 


We are grateful for these partnerships, but we also thank God every day for our partners right here in the U.S. Our Key Holders who give monthly, our one-time and regular donors, and all those who pray and support our work—thank you! Everyone plays a part in blanketing nations (Romania is only the beginning as the Freedom Highway spreads across Europe!) with freedom.
