'Magdalene'* was recruited for exploitation and fed lies to make her bring her children to the UK. Her children were kept under lock and key when she was taken out to work for no pay. She was powerless to act when they were forced to watch against the walls whilst the trafficker's family ate. Left only the scraps for themselves, Magdalene went without so that her children could eat. Stories like her's are why we work relentlessly for freedom.
Magdalene and her family were identified and moved into safe recovery accommodation after being taken nappies, clothes and hot food by the specialist staff of Hope for Justice working in partnership with a frontline agency. (*Name changed to protect his identity).
