Dealing With Modern-Day Slavery


Human trafficking is a growing problem in Sudan.

Kimberly Smith, president and founder of Make Way Partners, is involved first-hand in fighting modern-day slavery. 

“We have what we call a slave repatriation ministry,” she said, “where we just provide love and counseling and food, and we allow the widows to put their children into our school.”

Smith discussed one victory in the battle against human slavery. Asunta escaped after years of sexual abuse and being traded as property. After experiencing Christian love and compassion, Asunta came to know the Lord.

“I had the joy of baptizing her,” Smith said, “and that was one of the most joyous occasions that I’ve ever had.”
