There are an estimated 27 million slaves in the world today- more than at any time in history. Slavery is an internationally recognized crime against humanity. The United Nations defines slavery as “the status or condition of a person over whom any or all of the powers attaching to the right of ownership are exercised.” Slavery exists in many forms today, including human trafficking, bonded labor, forced labor, sex trafficking, and child soldiering. Slavery, in any form, represents a fundamental violation of human rights. Slaves often suffer a wide range of atrocities such as frequent beatings, rape, verbal abuse, threats of violence, forced religious conversion, body mutilation, and other types of malicious assaults on human dignity.
Now there is hope. Xslaves.org is working to provide educational, vocational training, microcredit, and other sustainable assistance programs to former slaves and returning refugees in Africa and around the world, while attempting to bring worldwide attention to the internationally condemned practice of modern-day slavery.
Please donate and help us support those who have suffered this horrific crime against humanity. Our current fundraising campaign is aimed at building a vocational training workshop for Friends of Orphans in Northern Uganda. Click here to learn more.
