HAART Kenya supports survivors of human trafficking and modern slavery on their path to independence through a holistic rehabilitation and reintegration programme. Most of the survivors of trafficking in our program depend on small businesses for their livelihood. Due to the effects of COVID-19 in Kenya, survivors’ incomes have reduced considerably. Most of them are living in informal settlements, have multiple family members depending on them, and have exhausted their savings. Survivors not only risk being re-trafficked, but they are also facing hunger and eviction from their homes. Their reintegration process is threatened.
HAART Kenya has been contacted by survivors in urgent need of temporary financial aid. Help us raise USD 50,000 by 30 July 2020 to support 100 survivors of human trafficking and their families for the next five months to carry them through the worst of the COVID-19 pandemic.
This project will provide survivors of human trafficking with basic necessities such as food, rent, medical care, masks, sanitizer, and clean water during this pandemic period. This will ensure that survivors and their families have food on their table and can stay safe in their current homes. This will considerably reduce their risk of contracting COVID-19 and falling prey to human traffickers. Let them have a future.
After COVID-19, survivors of human trafficking will continue their reintegration process, as supported by HAART. Your contribution will ensure that survivors’ livelihood is preserved, contributing to their successful reintegration towards economic independence and self-sufficiency.
