May Miles

Josh Smith's May Miles

I am running/paddling May miles because global estimates put the number of slaves today at more than 40 million. The victims are young girls in brothels. Eight-year-old boys forced to work in blisteringly hot and unsafe factories to produce cheap goods for the West – barely sleeping, eating or drinking. Innocent children working in fields or forced into begging. Men and women having their organs cut out and sold to Western bidders. One in four of the victims are children and 70 percent are women and girls. Murders are commonplace and violence is a way of life. Innocent people are taken, destroyed and discarded. This has to stop.

Story

Going the miles in May to break the grip of modern slavery. Slavery is abhorrent – the latest estimates put the number of global victims at 40 million and our own research, based on police data, suggests more than 100,000 victims in the UK alone. We are hoping to get 40  households to commit to cover as many miles (running/swimming/biking/paddleboarding/canoeing/skate boarding/scooting etc) as possible during the month of May . 1 household for every million estimated modern-day slavery victims. Help us break the grip of slavery!
Donate
  • £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
