Start living #SlaveFree this Lent

You’ll be on the journey with thousands of people across the UK. Say no to slavery by taking small, everyday actions and be part of the movement to end slavery in our lifetime.

Many of the products we use and buy every day are made by women, men and even children trapped in slavery. Join our 40-day journey to begin to live #SlaveFree this Lent.

Here's how it works:

25 million people are in forced labour slavery today, many making products that we consume every single day—products like coffee, chocolate and makeup. As part of our Make #SlaveFree Normal Campaign, we're challenging people across the UK to take crucial steps towards living #slavefree this Lent.

When you take on the #slavefreelent challenge, you'll become part of a global movement fighting to end slavery for good.

IJM is the world’s biggest anti slavery organisations. We’ve worked with law enforcement around the globe to rescue 50, 000 people trapped in slavery. By joining IJM UK’s #SlaveFree Lent journey, you’ll help us stop slavery at source and send rescue to even more people.

Chithra once could not remember a day in freedom

At just 2 years old, she became trapped with her family in a life of bonded labor slavery at a sugar cane farm. She experienced daily violence, harassment and deprivation for the next 20 years—even tragically losing her first unborn baby as she was forced to work. But in May 2018, the cries of Chithra’s family were finally heard and a rescue operation was immobilised that set her and six others free. Today, Chithra lives on her own terms with her husband and toddler son, and she says joyfully, “It feels great to be free!”
