The Freedom Project

One Free World International has launched The Freedom Project.

“We take our freedom for granted.
But thousands of moms and daughters can only dream of freedom today.
3,000 girls & women are still trapped as slaves of ISIS.

“Yazidi women and girls are being held in Iraq and Syria. Some have been trafficked to Saudi Arabia, Libya and Turkey.

“People like you made the life altering decision to take action. Their support has given OFWI the power to help over 600 women and children escape ISIS slavery.”

The Freedom Project petition will help to reinforce the petition for Yazidi trauma care put forward by the Women Refugees Advocacy Project. We encourage you to sign their petition too.

Please support The Freedom Project.

One Free World International is working right now to mobilize the resources to rescue women and girls enslaved by ISIS.

Breaking News

Rev. Majed El Shafie and OFWI have now launched The Freedom Project:

Many want to make a difference to help girls and women trapped in ISIS sex slavery but feel helpless, they do not know where to begin. Another study or report will not save these women. We need to act now to save those still enslaved by ISIS and trafficked throughout the Middle East. The Freedom Project is empowering those wanting to be a part of change, and helping free the women and children, around the world held in captivity as sex slaves.
