Did you know (facts and quotes from FreeTheSlaves.net)…
Slavery today costs less than ever. “In 1850, an average slave in the American South cost the equivalent of $40,000 in today’s money. Today a slave costs about $90 on average worldwide.”
Slavery is legal nowhere, but found everywhere. “Researchers estimate that 40 million are enslaved worldwide, generating $150 billion each year in illicit profits for traffickers.”
Modern slavery affects even the youngest among us. “About 25 percent of today’s slaves are children.”
But we are not powerless.
The Charidy team is committed to being part of the solution – to help put an end to human trafficking and modern-day slavery.
