Meet Rene*, a 24-year-old woman from Greece. Rene* had experienced many hard relationships in her life. When she met a man who promised to take care of her, she found comfort in him and began to trust him. But instead of looking after her, this man forced her to service men sexually—taking any money she made for himself.
Thankfully, Rene* fled to safety and law enforcement connected her with our team in Greece. Her trafficker has been arrested, and she is now in our care. Our aftercare team is committed to providing long term support and journeying with her every step of the way toward full restoration and independence. Since coming into our care, she has learned to trust, has already found employment, and is dreaming about her future again.
How? Because of every dollar raised and every step taken around the world, people like Rene* receive the care and support they need. Because when we take action locally, lives are reached, rescued, and restored globally. Your steps matter for the victims in your city. Your dollars matter for lives around the globe.
