Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of Nepal, as they recover from the devastating earthquake that struck on Saturday.
We are relieved to report that staffers for Free the Slaves and our front-line partner organizations are safe with their families at this time. However, many have lost their houses, and many others have been forced from their homes and into tents because of structural damage and the danger of aftershocks.
Many international relief organizations are mobilizing humanitarian missions to provide an immediate disaster response. We encourage Free the Slaves supporters to consider contributing to those efforts.
The risk of human trafficking increases in the aftermath of natural disasters, and Free the Slaves will be working with our team in Nepal to ensure that those who will be even more vulnerable because of the earthquake are supported and protected.
We will keep you updated with more information as it becomes available.
Thank you for your support.
