Your support is helping survivors overcome trauma, reduce vulnerability, and thrive independently.

Without specialized care and support, survivors may be vulnerable to dangerous environments or struggle to sustain their freedom–increasing the risk of being trafficked again.

That’s where our Restore programs step in. With access to holistic care, safe accommodations, and relocation services, survivors develop skills to achieve independence–stopping the cycle of slavery one life at a time.

This holiday season, you can help survivors restore their lives when you support our Aftercare Programs around the globe.

Julieta*

Orphaned at a young age, Julieta went to live with her relatives–where she was abused and later sold to a man who trafficked her. Upon realizing she was pregnant, Julieta summoned the strength and determination to escape, and she did.

Julieta

Meet Julieta* — orphaned at a young age, she and her siblings went to live with relatives after the death of their parents. Instead of receiving love and support from people she trusted, Julieta was psychologically, physically, and sexually abused by her relatives.

She endured everything from violence to isolation during the most tender years of her life. Julieta was later sold to a man who trafficked her to a foreign country and forced her into prostitution. Not long after arriving at a brothel in Turkey, she found out she was pregnant.

If Julieta didn't meet the traffickers' quota each day, she was denied food and water. Most days, she barely ate or slept. BUT HER FUTURE CHILD GAVE HER THE STRENGTH AND DETERMINATION TO ESCAPE.

So one day, she did.

By this time, Julieta was nearing the end of her pregnancy. She was alone and unable to speak the local language. Following the birth of her baby, Julieta struggled to gain stability for more than a year before she sought help from an organization offering legal aid, which is when she was referred to A21 for additional support.

A21 Greece welcomed Julieta into our Aftercare Program––where she learned how to heal from the trauma and reclaim her independence. She attended the Freedom Center, where she built community with other survivors and participated in creative workshops, life skills programs, and language classes.

Since graduating from A21's program, Julieta has sustained her independence. She knows her value and worth, regardless of the injustice she experienced early in life. And today, she's taking steps to create the life that she used to only dream of––in freedom and safety.

 

 

Because of your support, Julieta received the care she needed to reduce vulnerabilities, avoid re-victimization, and sustain her freedom for the future.

"Everyone at A21 has helped me so much since I entered the program," she exclaimed as tears rolled down her cheek. "I feel strong, and I finally believe in myself."

Julieta's story reminds us of the strength and resilience of survivors of human trafficking–even when they experience the most heartwrenching and unjust situations. Hope will prevail.

This is why we press on.
This is why we fight.
This is why we believe in life-changing aftercare.

Vova

Meet Vova* – A young man in his mid-twenties occasionally traveled to a territory of Ukraine that was a military conflict zone. His name was Vova, and he assisted civilians forced to live in this area.

Regardless of his efforts to help others, Vova was taken as a prisoner by the enemy military. He was tortured and forced to clean the premises where other prisoners were persecuted. Part of his duties included repackaging stolen items and carrying heavy bags of food that weighed up to 110 pounds (50kg).

Until one day, Vova was released by Ukrainian authorities and referred to A21 for help. Our team welcomed him into our Aftercare Program, where he received medical and psychological support for his injuries.

Vova repeatedly shares his gratitude for the role of A21 in his life during his recovery. “The mere presence of A21 in my life helped me survive.” And now, he lives in complete freedom, and he is hopeful for his future.

Lawana

Meet Lawana* –an eager young girl looking for an opportunity to provide for her family. She grew up in a small town in Southeast Asia, where wealth was sparse, and accommodations were minimal. Although she lived in poverty, her hard work ethic led her to odd jobs around the area.

She was kind, caring, and hopeful of a better future. Her social circle was small, including only a few close family members.

One day, Lawana’s relative told her about an opportunity to work abroad “serving customers” in a restaurant. The job appeared legitimate, and Lawana trusted her relative, so she accepted. But upon her arrival, the owner of the restaurant had something different in mind.

Lawana quickly learned that “serving customers” meant having sex with them. She was a victim of sex trafficking–tricked by a false job and FORCED TO SLEEP WITH MEN AT THE HAND OF HER TRAFFICKER. The job was a lie–a ploy for exploitation. Although things took a turn for the worst, this was not the end of her story.

Freedom prevailed, and justice was served.

Lawana courageously escaped with the help of a multidisciplinary rescue effort, including government agencies, law enforcement, nonprofit organizations, and A21.

The fraudulent establishment was shut down, and all of the traffickers, including Lawana’s relative, were convicted and imprisoned.

 

Lawana Profile

Lawana Profile Smiling

Although Lawana’s restoration journey was long, she never gave up. Lawana worked tirelessly to reclaim her independence, self-worth, and a hopeful outlook on the future. Over time, she learned how to trust again and built a healthy support system.

With the support of the A21 Aftercare Team, Lawana completed vocational training while maintaining steady employment. And because of her perseverance, she was finally able to support her family. Lawana is a joyful, resilient, and caring person who is fiercely independent–and we’re grateful to be part of her story.

We hope you are too. Because when you show up to support A21, you show up for survivors like Lawana.

Thank you. None of this would be possible without you.

Luci

Meet Luci* — A recently divorced and unemployed mother of two. She could no longer afford childcare, which ultimately left her jobless.

During this season of vulnerability, one of Luci's male neighbors pursued her romantically. At first, it seemed like a new beginning to her life. She started to date him and eventually they moved in together.

After some time, Luci’s boyfriend forced her to meet with clients for sex, telling her it was a temporary way to provide for her family. She felt like she had no choice. However, "temporarily" turned into a year and a half. Luci’s boyfriend spent all of her earnings on drugs and alcohol which led to Luci losing custody of her children.

It wasn’t until Luci learned from a nail technician, who recently attended a training on human trafficking, that many victims are exploited by someone pretending to be a boyfriend or a lover.

After sharing her story, Luci still didn't see herself as a victim of human trafficking, but she was desperate for help. She was connected to A21, where our team provided clothes, food, and a safe place to stay for the night. They also showed her compassion— helping her understand the situation she was in and how she had been exploited.
