It is estimated that more than 40 million people worldwide are in slavery - 136,000 in the UK alone. Victims like 17-year-old Maria* from Romania, who was taken from a friend's house, sold for a few thousand pounds, brought to the UK and then abused by countless men. Maria’s story, unfortunately, is not unusual. But Justice and Care are building a force to win the fight against human trafficking. They bring together experts from different disciplines to tackle human trafficking. They focus on destroying the criminal networks responsible, whilst employing an end to end transnational approach; incorporating prevention work in communities, supporting investigations, providing care to survivors and working with governments to spark systemic change. This year, instead of giving me an end of term gift, I would love for you to donate the money you may have spent on chocolate or flowers to Justice and Care. Together, let's give the gift of freedom this Christmas.
