More people are enslaved today than at any time in human history. In no country is the practice legal, yet its injustice continues to leave no country or community unaffected. Modern slavery is hidden in red light districts and factories, on fishing boats and farms, through our supply chains and even within our homes.
Slavery’s many labels include human trafficking, forced and bonded labor, sex trade, debt bondage, and domestic servitude. Its tragedy most often affects the vulnerable – men, women, and children alike. Ultimately, modern slavery is characterised by the denial of a basic freedom and human dignity when a victim is exploited for economic or personal gain.
Helping us raise awareness of human trafficking is our #1 priority. We aim to raise $28,000, so your donation will be much appreciated, no matter how big or small!
Besides GIVE, we have received HKD 17,700.00 from other sources.
