Imagine being a survivor of human trafficking, only to find yourself violently taken back by the person who enslaved you.

Alarmingly, a safe house -- the Center of Hope -- run by Visayan Forum, Walk Free’s partner in the Philippines, was attacked a few weeks ago by a violent mob. Traffickers stormed the shelter and took 16 women and girls with them. Thankfully, 11 managed to escape and have since been relocated to another safe house, where they are recovering from their emotional trauma.

Visayan Forum needs your help to protect survivors by improving security at the Center of Hope -- hiring a permanent security guard, building stronger gates, and creating a panic room for emergencies.
