GIVE THE GIFT OF RESCUE

THIS CHRISTMAS. Give rescue

Give the gift of rescue this Christmas

 

This year an estimated 10 million children will spend Christmas day in slavery.

And Boxing Day, and New Year’s Day, and throughout the long month of January and beyond.

Unless, of course, something remarkable happens.

 

If Christmas tells us anything, it tells us of the incredible intervening power of unexpected gifts.

You have the capacity this Christmas to secure the rescue of children and families trapped in slavery around the world.

Roopa’s story

Roopa couldn’t bear the thought of her son Vijay growing up in slavery, as she did.
 
One night she and her husband Banaiah planned a daring nighttime escape and slipped into a nearby forest.
 
After a few months of scraping by, the unthinkable happened — Roopa and her son were recaptured by the kiln owner. Banaiah found a local organisation who contacted IJM.
 
The very next day, they were freed and the abusive brick kiln owner was arrested and put in jail.
 
Now Roopa, Banaiah and Vijay are free, and they have welcomed a new baby girl, Bhoomika to their family.
