The Freedom Hubs' Survivor School provides survivors of human trafficking and slavery, in Australia, with long-term support, assisting with the recovery from trauma. The survivors get one-on-one training, mentoring and on-going support that is sensitive to their needs, so they are able to enter the workforce feeling empowered. They are currently supporting 60 survivors who were trafficked or in a slavery situation.
We have chosen to support the Freedom Hub because we want survivors to live a life that is truly free - mentally, physically, financially and spiritually.
As a brand we would like to thank everyone who has chosen to purchase our lingerie thus far and in doing so also choosing to help a cause that is having such an amazing social impact.
WHAT IS HUMAN TRAFFICKING?
Human trafficking is defined as; the action or practice of illegally transporting people from one country or area to another, typically for the purposes of forced labour or sexual exploitation. According to the Australian Government Department of Human Affairs, an estimated 2.5 million people are currently being exploited through human trafficking in Australia. Sadly this number continues to rise and so too does the trauma that continues long after the event.
“The suffering of other human beings is our suffering; it should disturb and move us to want to help do our part in assisting change to come.” ~ Dressember
