I'm Chinwe Onwubolu and I joined the Free-Them team in January 2018. Joining the team meant more than just combatting human trafficking. It meant digging deeper to learn, the willingness to understand the ways of the system and having to put myself in the shoes of the trafficked victims.
Human trafficking first became real to me when I heard of a young lady who had reached out to a colleague of mine, randomly, while waiting for the public transit. She needed a way out but didn't know how. At that moment, it was a cry of help to a complete stranger. A silent cry.
Ever since then, I've been passionate about the issue of human trafficking because I believe that no one deserves to be treated any less than what they're worth. Because the truth is that we are all worth so much, and more.
