One of our SHORTEST trials in South Asia just ended with one of the LONGEST sentences we’ve seen for slave owners: Earlier this month, our team saw a brick kiln owner convicted for enslaving 12 people and sentenced to 10 years in prison. And because of you, the brave survivors who testified will continue to thrive.

Thank YOU for walking with us until all are free—no matter how long justice takes. http://news.ijm.org/brick-kiln-owner-guilty-for-trapping-12-people-in-bonded-labor-slavery/

A few months after her husband’s death, Harriet’s brother-in-law showed up at her door, demanding she leave her land. Armed with a machete, he cut down her crops and threatened to kill her on the spot. He wanted the land for himself.

With your support, IJM protected and defended Harriet. Will you send rescue now to widows at risk of property grabbing?

Slavery doesn’t just exist—in some places, it is thriving. In fact, it’s estimated that more than 45,000,000 people are held in slavery today. Ending it may seem like an impossible task, but slavery has never been more stoppable than it is right now. ❌ #EndItMovement

#RESCUE: On Friday night, IJM helped rescue two girls from sexual exploitation in the Dominican Republic. Authorities arrested an Italian man suspected of sexually exploiting minors to produce child pornography. He is now in police custody, and IJM will continue to support the case so he is restrained and others in the community see real consequences for preying on vulnerable children.

The two girls, 16 and 17 years old, are safe at an aftercare shelter. IJM’s aftercare team was with them over the weekend and will keep checking in as they transition into a new life of freedom.
