RED GODFREY SAGOO. CEO. The ease with which humans are being bought and sold like commodities, is reflected in the estimated worth of human misery. Modern slavery and human trafficking is a rapidly expanding $150 billion global industry, that strips men, women and children of their fundamental human rights. At The Sophie Hayes Foundation, we believe the journeys of our women survivors start with Hope, just as Sophie’s had. Through Hope, the road to independence and sustainable freedom without fear, can be navigated and secured.
One day at a time.
One woman at a time.
One life at a time.
