Thaiyamma's story

Thaiyamma, her husband and their young daughter were trapped in slavery for three years, forced to chop wood under the threat of abuse.

When Thaiyamma discovered she was pregnant again, she couldn’t bear the thought of another of her children experiencing this fate.

Thaiyamma found the courage to speak up and thanks to her bravery, IJM and local authorities brought several families to safety and arrested the trafficker.

Thaiyamma gave birth to her son Bablu in freedom just a few weeks later.

As she held her baby for the first time, Thaiyamma looked down at him in awe, and whispered, “I never knew I was going to see you. I never knew that I would meet you in freedom, and here you are."
