Help a Survivor of Human Trafficking Remove a Branding Tattoo
Time & Location
About the Event
Rhonelle Bruder, a trafficking survivor and founder of Project i RISE, a survivor-led, anti-trafficking non-profit organization out of the Greater Toronto area decided that she wanted to help other survivors in Ontario who were still marked by trafficking brands. Project i RISE has recently launched an initiative to raise funds to remove branding tattoos for survivors of human trafficking.
CARE Project Grey-Bruce has joined on as an iRise Ambassador to raise $500 for the cost to to help one human trafficking survivor with their branding tattoo removal. We recently were able to help a brave 24-year old woman who is a survivor of sexual violence and exploitation in our community begin the process to have a tattoo camouflaged that she was branded with which resulted in significant scarring two years ago by her abuser because of this amazing initiative.
"Because of this, I will be able to put some of the trauma of my past behind me. Thank you ... I hope you can help other survivors like me" - Name Protected
