Aslam Family – 7 people – FREE!
UPDATE! After eight years the Aslam family is now free! The family is now relocating, and the son is receiving ongoing treatment for hepatitis. A job has been arranged for the father, and everyone is thrilled to be free. Thank you to our New Zealand sponsors for making this possible!
This family has been in slavery for eight years. When the young son was sick, this father took a loan to pay for the child’s medical care. Unfortunately the son is still sick and still needs treatment.
This family has four daughters, all of whom are in critical daily danger of sexual assault. This family is a priority–please consider helping us to set this family free as soon as possible.
The cost of their freedom in $1700NZD or $1220USD.
Breakdown of cost (in USD): $850 loan repayment, $50 food for one month, $300 medical care, $20 bank transfer fees.
WHAT IS BONDED LABOR SLAVERY?
Bonded-labor accounts for 75% of all slavery. People become enslaved when they are forced through poverty to take a loan from the brick-kiln owners. The vast majority of people we redeem take a loan to pay for medical costs of a loved-one. They sign a contract with the kiln-owners to work at the kiln until the debt is repaid. They are then exploited, paid a fraction of the agreed price (in many cases only 25c per hour) as the debt balloons with interest and additional fees. The workers are forced to work for 14 hours a day, seven days a week. There are no holidays. After the loan repayments are deducted from their wages they barely have enough to feed their families let alone pay for the education of their children. When they die, their children carry on to in slavery to repay their debt. They are mistreated, abused and robbed of their wages day after day. Most have given up hope, not knowing that there are people who want to help.
Now is your chance to help to end slavery for an entire family. Now is your chance to help a family to start a new life.
