Fivers for Survivors Day

by | Jun 16, 2019

 

Help end slavery in Australia

 

Join thousands of others on Fivers for Survivors Day and together we can impact ending slavery and help victims recover.

There are at least 15,000 people in slavery in Australia. This is unacceptable in a country like ours. The Freedom Hub fights to end this crime and we run a Survivor School to help victims recover. The work of the Freedom Hub is privately funded by people like you. So thank you for being part of this. We are a registered Australian charity and will provide a tax-deductible receipt.

Fivers for Survivors Day is on October 18th 2021

 

This is one day a year that you can mobilise all your networks, work buddies and friends to donate just $5 toward this cause.

Can you can gather 5 people in your home or have a picnic?

Or can you gather 50 people on zoom, in the office or local hangout?

Maybe 500 people in your school or uni?

How you host that event is a broad as your imagination! 

You can run your Fivers for Survivors event ahead of the nominated date if the date does not work for you.

Poverty and Modern Slavery

“Many people who become trapped in slavery are the people who are already trapped in poverty. People in extreme poverty often try to find ways out of their desperate situation, and many are lured into the slave trade with promises of education, steady work and a better life. Instead, they are sold into slavery, often for as little as $90 a person, and imprisoned with literal chains or psychological pressure. They can then be forced into different types of slavery, including sexual exploitation and prostitution, forced labor, being compelled to act as beggars, benefit fraud and organ removal.”
