Story

Hope for Justice exists to bring an end to modern slavery by preventing exploitation, rescuing victims, restoring lives and reforming society. We help people like sisters Letu* and Chaltu*, who grew up in a poor family on a farm in western Ethiopia. They were offered an amazing opportunity for a new life in the capital, with education, food and accommodation. But it was a lie the sisters were heartlessly separated. Letu was put to work as a domestic maid and farmhand, Chaltu sent to be a full-time nanny. An argument between their new owners led to them being kicked out onto the streets of Addis Ababa. They were found later in nearby woods, barely surviving. Thankfully, they were brought to Hope for Justices Lydia Lighthouse. They got counselling and one-to-one support. Soon after the sisters were reunited with their family. I lost two children in one day, and now I have them back, their mother said. Thank you for saving my children."
