Human trafficking is the illegal trade of human beings, mainly for the purposes of forced labor and sex trafficking. As the world's fastest growing criminal industry, it affects every nation across the globe. Every 30 seconds, someone becomes a victim of modern-day slavery.
There are more slaves in the world today than at any other point in human history. With an estimated 24.9 million in bondage globally, sex trafficking generates an estimated $99 billion. The International Labour Organization estimates that women and girls account for 71% of modern day slavery victims.
Morning Show's Leslye Gale is working with KBF Design Gallery of Altamonte Springs to remodel her kitchen. KBF is a family owned and operated business and the owner, Keith Vallequette, is working with his Central Florida Church to help bring an end to the despicable human slave trade. Keith and his wife Melissa, through their church (Action Church in Winter Springs) will be traveling to Uganda on a mission trip to support various ministries, including one that has a special place in our hearts, She Is More Than. This local, nonprofit organization’s mission is to “…restore hope, freedom, and faith to women who have undergone injustices such as human trafficking and sexual abuse.”
There are two opportunities for you to help.
