This January, during Human Trafficking Awareness month, many people are talking about the harsh realities of modern-day slavery around the world. This is a dark story, one we must stop and listen to. We cannot look away.
Human trafficking is a $150 billion a year global industry. This is big business for traffickers who see precious souls as dollars to be made. These are the people Uncaged exists for—vulnerable women and children.
But we also will not remain there in the darkness. We will look toward the light, the hope of freedom. At the end of last year, we shared Annabelle’s story with you—one survivor on the road to healing. She still has a long way to go and we need your partnership to continue walking with her. We also need you in order to extend this kind of transformation into the lives of many, many more.
Many responded. We had more year-end gifts from brand-new donors than ever before. More people joining the fight for freedom - will you?
We cannot tell you the excitement we have as we move into 2023. When we were led to Romania to start our work of building The Sanctuary, we knew it was a strategic location—a source country for trafficking across the region.
But we are seeing how strategic this incredible country is for prevention. It is becoming a center of transformation spreading out across the continent.
Doors are opening. Cages are being unlocked. We are seeing more people rise up than ever before to combat human trafficking in some of the places it is most entrenched.
You can help us walk boldly into 2023. We can’t wait to see what doors open wide this year because of you!
