In this week’s episode of The Whole Circle Podcast we talk to Melody Towns from the wonderful charity, Be Her Freedom.

Be Her Freedom (the foundation arm of Be Hers) was founded by a group of girlfriends who were horrified upon hearing of the size and scope of modern-day slavery and felt compelled to do more.

They are honoured to have a movement of thousands of passionate, every day women – all determined to raise funds and awareness for the freedom of men, women and children held in sexual slavery across the globe.

Through their fundraising with Be Hers, they continue to be amazed at the generosity of those across their community, nation and beyond. Together they continue to raise much needed funds and awareness regarding the issue of human trafficking and the need for this to be brought to the forefront of the world’s attention. Whilst they may not be able to save all 48.5 million held in captivity today, they are determined to not ignore the cry of the ONE and do all they can to bring her freedom.

Let’s just for a moment take in that figure from above that 48.5 million people are held in captivity around the world! That’s two populations of Australia worth of people being held in captivity and human trafficked for sex-slavery! This is utterly devastating.

Topics discussed:

  1. What is Be Hers?
  2. What is Be Her Freedom?
  3. The A21 Campaign
  4. Human trafficking and sex-slavery really is a global problem
  5. Why have we partnered with them?
  6. Where does the money donated through Additive-Free Lifestyle actually go?
  7. What can you do to help?
  8. Together we can BE THE CHANGE!
