Freedom Sunday

'Human Trafficking is not just a problem in other countries. Modern day slavery exists in our local cities, towns and communities'

Around the world many church denominations and organisations have been setting aside a specific day in the year to pray about the issue of human trafficking.

In 2017, we are delighted that through Freedom Sunday, so many churches around the world are coming together in this global day of worship, prayer and action to stop human trafficking.

As well as supporting a number of international projects, The Salvation Army has had responsibility for supporting adult victims of modern slavery and trafficking in England and Wales through a Government contract since July 2011.

For below video, we worked with HSBC in a bid to tackle modern slavery and human trafficking. HSBC has produced this new global staff training video to explain the scale of the challenge. It also shows how bank staff can be alert to the signs that traffickers are using their services to exploit people.

The video includes an interview with a survivor - Adam* who bravely talks about his story and how he was brought into the UK, beaten and forced to work without pay. Adam was supported by The Salvation Army following his harrowing ordeal.
