Within the talk she mentions the NGO FREE THE SLAVES if anyone can donate please do.

Heartbreaking puts it mildly. I don't know how their bodies and minds can endure. There are people who have thrown themselves off bridges for having a far less hardship. I suppose hell is in one's mind but what these people endure daily is beyond hell.

KALLIOPE, YOU TOOK ACTION ON JULY 28, 2017 (Petition)

You know what? I'm convinced that slavery ever was and ever will be a problem. Because there are always people in our society, who think, they are more priviledged, more worth and at all better than other people and for this owe the right to exploit all those, which are less worth in their eyes. This fact is not only shameful but also shows how degenerate and inhumane our so named civilized society really is.

It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society. (Jiddu Krishnamurti)
