Uganda’s Karamoja region is one of the poorest in the nation, with income poverty at 66% and food poverty at 75%. As conditions continue to worsen due to the global food crisis, people become more and more vulnerable to exploitation and trafficking. Dire conditions also threaten to exacerbate the rise of child labor and stall efforts towards prevention and care.
This is why now, more than ever, providing access to high quality care to more trafficking survivors is crucial.
And, thanks to your support, we can do just that. In July, EverFree and a local partner organization opened a new residential shelter for trafficking victims in Uganda.
With trafficking on the rise in Uganda, this new shelter is a beacon of hope, providing care, support and opportunity for survivors to thrive in freedom.
