Over 45 million people in 167 countries are trapped in what is known as “modern slavery,” with seven out of ten of these victims directly related to the private sector.
These people, who make the products we buy and harvest the food we eat, are exploited every day for their labor. Despite the best efforts made by governments, the United Nations and NGOs around the world, only 0.2% of the victims around the world are helped each year.
