Bringing Freedom's Story
My name is Naomi Bruce and Bringing
Freedom is my small non-profit Cornish Charity to help end human
trafficking and slavery. The purpose of my charity is to passionately
support the work of Love146 & the A21 Campaign.
After hours of investigating
I chose to walk part of 'The Way of St. James' in Spain from Burgos
to Santiago de Compostela. The walk ended up totaling to 327 miles.
To be completed in 17 days. On average I will be covering a walking distance
of 20 miles (30 km) per day.
Yulia Doroff from Russia was touched by
Bringing Freedom and Love146 story that she decided to join me on my
adventure and challenge, to carry on walking to fully support our two
campaigns. Yulia was supposed to finish in Leon as she started in
St.Jean and had already completed Leon to Santiago de Compostela last
November, so there was no need for her to walk on after Leon. Yulia
showed support, strength, courage and provided laughter at our times which were
very hard. Thank you Yulia for walking most of 'The Way' with me.
Why the challenge?
At times I find myself sitting down in
silence thinking about the world we live in. I am always grateful and thankful
to God for its beauty, how the destinations bring us joy by offering their
history, culture, magnificent oceans, and the people who are in our lives. Even
though we have these marvellous gifts we unfortunately have darkness and
cruelty in the world too. Human trafficking, the second largest criminal crime
in the world. Love146 have quoted that in 2012, the U.K. Human Trafficking
Centre identified 549 children who were potential victims of human trafficking,
and an estimated 60% of these children went missing from local authority care.
To walk the Burgos to Camino de
Santiago to help spread the word about the facts on human trafficking and
to create awareness. Every little movement we do to help create awareness
and funds will help decrease the number of woman and children being captured
and lured into the trafficking industry. So our goal is to raise a massive
£1000.00 for the Love146 through Bringing Freedom.
"I know that I can't physically
save someone with my own bare hands but what I can do with YOUR help is make a
difference to someone's life by creating awareness and funds for Love146
through my Bringing Freedom charity. If WE can save one girls or
boys life, it is worth EVERYTHING to me, let's join together to make a
