The power we have to act is profound

Posted on June 20, 2017 by Danae Moran

Over half of the world’s refugees are children.

These people are no different than we are, but have been forced out of their homes, are living on the run and in danger of further violence.

Every minute, 24 people are displaced.

Over 13.5 million people in Syria alone need humanitarian assistance.

Almost 75% of migrants attempting to cross the Central Mediterranean have experienced exploitation and human trafficking.

With such a wave of despair and chaos, the human trafficking industry swells. Taking advantage of the most vulnerable, traffickers are not missing this opportunity to exploit and profit from refugee children.

These kids are not so unlike our own. And the power we have to act is profound. Without fear of being attacked, getting enough food, or if we’ll have a shelter to sleep in at night, we are free to think critically in ways many cannot.

So we choose to stay engaged, to dig in and add to the collective wave of action needed to make a difference to people who are in desperate need of it. With rescuers already at work, we stand beside them and ask, “how can we help?” These amazing men and women are offering hope and a new start to people in need.

At Unseen, we’re currently extending a hand to 25 of these missions in 17 countries. Through our partnership we offer mentorship, fundraising training and coaching and media/marketing tools to help these organizations grow in effectiveness and reach.

And yet, just like you, we see stories on the news, and know there is so much more to do! So we look at our partners’ work full of inspiration and press on towards our goal, to fight human trafficking and its root causes. We can’t do it alone, we’d love to have you join us.
