Fundraising Event: I will be participating in the London Duathlon (half) to raise money for Justice&Care and help with their work of tackling modern slavery and saving lives (see a little about the charity below). Please support me in fundraising for this very worthy cause. When: September 8th, 2019 in Richmond Park Justice and Care: "It is all around us, hidden in plain sight. It is walking our streets, supplying shops and supermarkets, working in fields, factories or nail bars, trapped in brothels or cowering behind the curtains in an ordinary street: slavery." - Theresa May 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.
- £15 could pay for a simple hygiene pack for someone who has just been rescued from slavery in the UK
- £50 could help provide access to therapeutic services, helping a survivor come to terms with their experience
- £100 can help provide essential training to the police officers, prosecutors and the judiciary to help ensure those responsible for trafficking are brought to justice
From 5 supporters.
Have a great time in the Duathlon - It’s great fun! And for a worthy cause to focus on. Best Wishes and watch out for the deer.
Good Luck Elaine !! xx
