Previously unable to see more than a few inches in front of her, she picked out her own glasses, and today a future she never imagined possible is coming into focus.


Annabelle told Uncaged staff recently that she is looking forward to receiving vocational training and getting a job. She asked if she could attend church.


The community has come together to support Annabelle’s transformation—from the doctor who donated his services and the glasses to our friends at Biblicawho donated the Bible she now holds in her hands.


If she doesn’t receive major surgery next year, the doctor says she will lose her eyesight. Your gifts make this next step of transformation possible. Will you join the incredible community supporting Annabelle and others like her with a donation today?

When you say yes to an end-of-the-year gift to Uncaged, you’re allowing Annabelle to take steps into the future she can now see. You’re also helping unlock transformation for countless survivors like her.


Your gifts go to meet basic, critical needs like these. We want to say yes to more survivors, to more transformation in 2023. Annabelle’s story is one of many survivors like her in Eastern Europe. They are waiting for the kind of transformation she is experiencing. They don’t have care or comfort. They have unmet medical needs and are still in bondage. They aren’t free to decide their own futures yet. Will you make this possible for them?


Your year-end gift will support Survivors with resources and care such as:

  • $50 will provide 1 week of art therapy for a survivor.

  • $100 will provide intake support for a survivor.

  • $450 will provide a Survivor with much-needed immediate necessities like wardrobe and medical attention.

  • $1000 will provide vocational training for a survivor.

  • $2500 will provide a survivor with legal fees, trauma care, and in some cases transportation home to Romania.

  • $5000 will provide a survivor medical/emotional/spiritual care for 3 months.

This time last year all Annabelle wanted for Christmas was to be free. This year, she is not only free from her traffickers, but she is learning that she has the freedom to dream!

When survivors, like Annabelle, take an interest in their futures, they learn they can make their own decisions. They are heading toward the ultimate goal of empowerment. This is a key to our holistic approach at The Sanctuary.

We are helping survivors understand the power they have to make choices about their own lives. Every choice they are given is activating the part of the brain that trauma has

affected, bringing them closer to wholeness.


Thanks to the generosity of your gifts, Annabelle’s transformation has begun. She is doing well in school, has built a trusting relationship with another survivor, and has received the medical care she needed.


Your gifts make Christmas miracles like these possible.


There are survivors still in bondage this Christmas awaiting transformation.


This is only the beginning. We want to bring many more survivors to The Sanctuary in 2023.


Your year-end gift will support Survivors with resources and care such as:

  • $50 will provide 1 week of art therapy for a survivor.

  • $100 will provide intake support for a survivor.

  • $450 will provide a Survivor with much-needed immediate necessities like wardrobe and medical attention.

  • $1000 will provide vocational training for a survivor.

  • $2500 will provide a survivor with legal fees, trauma care, and in some cases transportation home to Romania.

  • $5,000 will provide a survivor medical/emotional/spiritual care for 3 months.

  • $20,000 will provide wrap-around care for 4 survivors for 3 months.

  • $50,000 will cover a month of operations at The Sanctuary.

Won’t you give Annabelle and others like her the gift of hope and healing this season?

As the situation in Ukraine deteriorated and women and children fled to neighboring countries, Romania received an influx of refugees vulnerable to traffickers. We knew we needed to step in and help the local community recognize signs of trafficking and help these refugees stay free.


Our friends at Convoy of Hope have provided relief supplies and we are working with the local community to distribute food, clothing, and more to Romanian communities that have been housing Ukrainian refugees. This has provided the perfect opportunity to bring help and training at once!


Survivors at the Sanctuary have even been involved in unloading the shipping containers of supplies. After spending the morning hauling packages of rice heavier than they are, some survivors sat around the lunch table, chatting. Looking at her plate full of food, one survivor said, “We loaded up the rice today and those people don’t have food until that rice gets there.” Appreciating what she had, this survivor understood there are people in even worse situations. Instead of thinking of her own rescue, she is thinking about others. What a transformation!

Our team has had the privilege of delivering these aid supplies to Ukrainian refugees. They have been met with love and appreciation. They even got to participate in a birthday party at one location. A little girl celebrated her eighth birthday while thinking of her father back in Ukraine fighting the war.


The gifts our donors give that allow us to continue this work mean this little girl could experience joy on her birthday, though separated from her family and home. Thank you for being a part of transforming lives and communities this holiday season! As we blanket Europe with anti-trafficking resources, care, and compassion we are pushing back the darkness of trafficking!
