30 profiles of survivors and practitioners

To mark its 30th anniversary, the Fund will publish 30 profiles over 30 days, starting on 2 December, the International Day for the Abolition of Slavery. The 30 stories will feature people from all corners of the globe who have survived the unthinkable and have managed to rebuild and give back. All continue to fight for the right to rehabilitation, healing, and humanity for slavery survivors.
