GLOBAL: WEA and European Freedom Network Launch New Global Network to Step Up Efforts in Fight Against Human Trafficking
The World Evangelical Alliance (WEA) and the European Freedom Network (EFN) are pleased to announce the launch of a new global network to fight human trafficking. An estimated 43 million people worldwide are caught up in this modern form of slavery, in which women, men and children are exploited, bought and sold for economic gain. The newly formed World Freedom Network (WFN) will bring together a variety of organizations and experts with a specific focus on how churches can get involved and play a unique role in addressing this issue in their own local contexts. Leanne Rhodes who has served as Executive Director of the EFN has been appointed as the new network’s Global Director.
