Tearfund Mums are Moving for Freedom!
Will you join or support us to help those trapped in modern slavery and exploitation?
Our team of Tearfund mothers are getting ready to go the distance from 1 - 14 June, and claim back the trafficking route from Keng Tung (Myanmar) to Chiang Rai (Thailand), where millions of women and girls get trapped as victims of human trafficking.
About 4.8 million people are victims of forced commercial sexual exploitation - this is almost the entire population of New Zealand! These people are vulnerable due to poverty and in search of a better life. Once in the hands of traffickers, they're forced into lives of slavery and exploitation, often never to return home.
This isn't right! Every person deserves access to freedom. That is why we've decided to take up the Poverty Cycle challenge - because we know that our contribution will bring hope to others, empowering those trapped in modern day slavery.
We would love your support through this challenge. Your donation, no matter the amount, will ultimately make a huge difference. Here's what your donation could achieve:
- $20 Helps educate a community on safe routes when migrating for work to reduce their risk of trafficking.
- $80 Provides an intelligence analyst the ability to create an intelligence profile that can match a trafficker to online child sexual abuse images.
- $150 Provides legal support for a survivor to give their testimony in court to help secure a conviction against their trafficker.
- $300 Donates two full educational support scholarships to reduce the vulnerability of girls living along dangerous trafficking routes.
No matter sunshine, rain or windstorms - we will be challenging ourselves over the two weeks, to walk, run and ride 218kms collectively, to help raise $5000 towards the cause in order to help bring freedom to those without it.
Please sponsor now and #MoveForFreedom with us this June.
