21 Rescued Across Three African Countries


19 children, as well as two 18-year-olds, were rescued in Zimbabwe, Kenya and Uganda.

Most were rescued from selling their bodies for food, but a few were victims of sex crimes. All the survivors, including one 16-year-old boy, have entered our Community Care program. While every rescue is a reason to celebrate, we are excited to see more and more survivors from our new Rescue Nations in Africa. To hear how the project in Zimbabwe is changing lives straight from the survivors, check out this blog post.
