We stopped two women from being trafficked.
Hi Friends, Our trip to Romania, the site of our first Sanctuary, has been filled with fascinating experiences — but this one was certainly a highlight: A colleague and I arrived at the airport to pick up several of our psychology and agriculture experts. As we entered the airport, we noticed two young ladies accompanied by an older man and a younger man. Something just didn’t feel right.
After watching for several minutes and noticing some disturbing and inappropriate behavior, we decided to get involved. We took action, including alerting airport security and other authorities who took the matter in hand. Later that evening, we were informed that it was in fact a case of human trafficking. The two young ladies were told they were going to a foreign country for employment. Supposedly, they would be caring for an elderly couple in a castle and would be paid a generous wage. The truth was, they were about to be trafficked. We were in the right place at the right time, and two lives were saved. In fact, it becomes clearer every day that we ARE in the right place at the right time. Romania is the perfect place to start making our global vision a reality.
We are more committed than ever to fight the evil of modern day slavery ... first in Romania and then in other desperate places around the world. Thank you for your support and encouragement. I filmed this video of the Sanctuary property on our recent trip. Look how beautiful it is! As we prepare to launch the programming of the first Sanctuary village, we need your help.
Join us in bringing transformation to the lives of survivors in Romania and beyond.
