While travelling throughout Ukraine, Anton* was offered a chance to work overseas. Excited about this new opportunity, he accepted. But Anton* was lied to. When he arrived, nothing was as it seemed. His identification documents were burned, and he was beaten by his traffickers. They forced him to work in a factory, on a farm, and in a household for little or no pay—he was enslaved and abused for three years.
After multiple attempts, Anton* finally managed to escape and was connected with A21 upon returning home. Today, bondage is no longer his daily reality. He is free, and our team in Ukraine is committed to assisting him toward full healing and restoration.
Anton’s* freedom is why we fundraise. Because we believe that with every dollar raised and every investment made in the fight for freedom, we will see people identified, protected, and set free globally.
*Survivor’s name has been changed for their protection.
*All provided statistics are based on A21 data and survivors we have assisted.
