There are 27 million slaves in the world today.
Every minute, two children are sold into slavery. Slavery still exists. It is estimated that human trafficking alone generates annual profits of around $32 billion. (ILO) In 1850, the cost of a save was around $40,000 in our current currency. Today, the price of a slave is $90. (Free the SaveS) “The victims most vulnerable are children and women who are sold, bonded, trafficked, subjected to commercial sexual exploitation, recruited into armed conflicts and forced to work as domestic workers.” (Anti-Savery.net, End It)
