Randa was abducted by ISIS from northern Iraq along with her heavily-pregnant mother. Forced into slavery Randa was taken and raped by a man twice her age.1 She’s 16 years old.

Esther Ruth Atim was kidnapped from Uganda when she was 9 years old by the Lord’s Resistance Army, a Christian militia. “Rape was on a daily basis. I was raped so I couldn’t even move…like a normal (person)…I could only move like a jumping frog.”2

Over three thousand women and girls have been forced into sexual slavery by Daesh during the conflict in Iraq and Syria.3 But the horror doesn’t end there — men, women, boys and girls all over the world have been forced into slavery during conflict.

Captured, sold-off, raped and forced into a life of servitude. Christian, Muslim, Ugandan or Yazidi this crime against humanity doesn’t discriminate.
