Birthday for Freedom
Although I might currently be stuck in self-isolation and my physical freedom has to some extent been reduced, there are millions of people across the world who are trapped, exploited, raped, enslaved and have ZERO freedom or autonomy over their own lives. Coronavirus can not distract us from remembering those who are trapped in the grip of modern slavery. When you’re a child abused in a brothel or working 18 hours days in a blisteringly hot factory, you don’t get to celebrate your birthday. That’s why this year as my big day approaches, rather than ask for gifts or a drink at the pub I’m asking you to help bring freedom to those trapped in slavery. Your gift will help Justice and Care rescue and care for survivors and track down those responsible. Anything you can give will make a difference.
