God is raising up an army to BREAK the chains of this injustice, see the captives freed, restoring HOPE and bringing HEALING to the broken hearted.
“The Israelites groaned in their slavery and cried out, and their cry for help because of their slavery went up to God. God heard their groaning and he remembered his covenant…” Exodus 2:23-24 (NIV)
- There are more slaves today than at any other point in history!
- Human trafficking is the fastest growing form of international and organised crime and the second largest illegal trade within the world!
- It is estimated that there are more than 22 million people worldwide suffering as modern day slaves!
- The average age of those being trafficked is only 12 years old!
When reading these statements is there a sense of injustice, which stirs up within? William Wilberforce who was able to abolish slavery in 1833 said:
“You may choose to look the other way but you can never say again that you didn’t know!”
Slavery is not a new thing, back in Exodus we have the Israelites groaning in their slavery and God heard their cries & called a man named Moses who thought that because of his previous mistakes God could never use him again. What a presumption to make, because God used Moses to deliver a nation from slavery simply because of his obedience to speak, to act & his total dependency upon God to perform a miracle to see God’s people set free.
Today there are millions of people entrapped & ensnared in the lifestyle of Human Trafficking & their cries are being heard by the heart of God who is looking for a response from His Church, His people.

At Operation Blessing UK we have partnered with a Christian charity based here in the UK “Safe From Slavery” to help raise awareness, equip the church to fight & take a stand against Human Trafficking. Safe From Slavery has three main aims:
Partner: equip the church to fight against modern day slavery, joining with other organisations across the globe to become ONE VOICE to abolish trafficking in the 21st Century.
Protect: provide long-term aftercare for survivors of sex trafficking, to include safe accommodation and a rebuilding programme, restoring hope, dignity and the potential of a brighter future.
Prevent: raise awareness of trafficking and it’s impact on the victims through advocacy and awareness campaigns, through education projects including the risk of grooming.
Safe From Slavery is opening the UK’s first long term aftercare home for survivors of sex slavery. Do you want to leave a lasting legacy & make a stand against modern day slavery? Will you partner with us with your onetime gift or monthly donation of £10, £25, £50 or more?
