What bird do you associate with this time of year?

For most people, the answer is the robin. But at Hope for Justice, we think at Christmas of the bird in our logo, the swallow. In the winter, swallows fly 6,000 miles south. It takes them six weeks of exertion, extreme weather, and the risk of starvation and exhaustion. But despite all this, swallows nearly always come back to the same colony – and almost half return to the exact same nest.

At Hope for Justice, we help people find their freedom from exploitation and trafficking, and we work to safely reunite survivors of modern slavery with their families. Many of the survivors we work with have been trafficked across continents. Even more feel worlds away from the person they once were and the life they once had. No matter where someone is on their journey, we walk alongside them so they feel safe, supported, seen. And our greatest joy of all comes when we step back, and watch them fly.

This Christmas, almost 50 million people are caught in modern slavery. 19.9 million people are forced to work long hours in brutal conditions for little or no pay. 22 million people are in marriages to which they never said ‘I do’. And 6.6 million people are suffering sexual abuse and exploitation.

But you can give them hope.

Hope to be reunited with their family.
Hope for their story to be heard.
Hope for somewhere to call home.
Hope for a fresh start and a new life, free from slavery.
Hope for justice.

This Christmas, your gift can be the reason that a man, woman, boy or girl caught in modern slavery can hope for a brighter future. And, thanks to a generous match-donor, whatever you can give to Hope for Justice this year will be doubled, meaning you can have twice the impact.

*Gifts made via this webpage before December 31st 2022 will be doubled, up to a global total of £220,000 / US$245,000 / 2 600 000 kr / AU$392,000
