Freedom from Slavery

The tale of Emmanuel and his family is not different from that of other enslaved people. Emmanuel started working in the kiln when he was a child. After over 40 years of laboring in the kiln, he dreamed that one day, his debt would be paid off, and he would be a free man. This remained just a dream until we rescued him and his family and placed them in a new and better place.

Life in the Kiln: Hard Work, Low Pay, and Strict Control

Emmanuel, a devoted father of three, endured years of grueling labor at a Kiln, where he and his family faced constant oppression and exploitation. Despite their hard work, the pay was dismally low, barely enough to sustain their basic needs. The Kiln Manager exerted strict control over their lives, not allowing them any freedom of movement. They were not even allowed to go to church.

The Arrival of Hope: Our Intervention

Amidst this bleak existence. Our organization, committed to fighting modern-day slavery, learned of Emmanuel’s plight and acted. With determination and compassion, we managed to rescue Emmanuel and his family from the Kiln. This rescue was more than just a liberation; it was a mission to restore their dignity and give them a chance at a new life.

A New Beginning: Freedom

Now, Emmanuel and his family have relocated to a safe and supportive environment. We have provided them with essential resources: housing, food, clothing, and shelter. More importantly, we have given Emmanuel a new job and provided a schooling facility for his children so they can rebuild their lives with a sense of hope and freedom.

We urge you to Join the Greater Mission of Rescuing these Christians from Persecution and Slavery. Every life is precious and deserves to live in freedom, dignity, and safety. Around the world, there are millions of Christians facing horrific persecution, oppression, and even slavery due to their faith. This is an unacceptable violation of basic human rights and religious freedom.
