President’s Message

March 2017


The adage “It comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb” is usually associated with the weather in March, and certainly applies to the conditions this year!  In more general terms, the saying refers to something that has a fierce beginning but a peaceful ending.  This unequivocally describes the dreadful journey experienced by survivors of human trafficking.  


The physical and mental abuse those women endured is beyond comprehension to most of us.  They lived in fear, possessing no control over their bodies or their surroundings.  After years in a horrifying situation, with no light at the end of the tunnel, many of them may have lost hope.  Fortunately, some were rescued (or escaped) and thanks to “Free the Girls” they have been given the opportunity to rebuild their lives in a harmonious way.

 

Our bra collection project – now half-way to its goal of 500 bras – is helping “Free the Girls” guide the women on a path to true freedom and financial independence.  More importantly, our kindness is the lamb that brings a peaceful ending to their stories.
