The Walk Free Foundation says:
‘With 35.8 million people enslaved today, the curse of modern slavery is a significant barrier to the wellbeing and economic prosperity of the world at large. Victims of modern slavery are often prevented from receiving an education, receive little or no pay, and cannot speak or move freely. This is not only a grave injustice for those experiencing these conditions but the knock on effects are unfathomable’
The world is missing out on the potential of millions of people.
Unbelievably, ending modern slavery is not yet a clear priority in the proposed Sustainable Development Goals — a transformative action plan which will help shape governments’ policies for years to come.
Sign the Petition on the Walk Free Foundation website to draw this to the attention of the United Nations Secretary – General Ban Ki Moon.
