Generous Walk Free supporters around the world have so far raised over US$37,000 to help rebuild the shelter for survivors of human trafficking in the Philippines.
The violent attack on the Center of Hope revealed the extreme tactics employed by traffickers. As Visayan Forum Director Ma. Cecilia Flores-Oebanda,who runs the shelter, declared, “traffickers are getting bolder and bolder everyday; if we are to stop them, we must all work together, everyone must fight.”
“The attack on our safe house is but one example of the many ways in which trafficking victims and the organizations that help them are harassed and threatened.”
