Aged Care Plus Walkathon
Help support The Salvation Army's Aged Care Plus 2016 Walkathon to help end slavery in Australia
From 28th August to 3rd September The Salvation Army's Aged Care Plus team will hit the streets to raise funds for The Freedom Partnership, The Salvation Army's national initiative to end modern day slavery.
Many people are surprised to learn that modern slavery exists. More than 29.8 million people are enslaved globally, with an estimated 3,300 people falling victim to this trade here in Australia. Help us help them walk to freedom. Join the 2016 Walkathon to help end modern slavery in Australia.
The Freedom Partnership
The Freedom Partnership aims to mobilise community, business and government to realise their contributions to modern slavery and take action to eradicate it. It also stands to support people in crisis through the Australian Freedom Fund. This fund makes resources such as shelter, transport, food, legal and emergency medical care available to people in crisis, ensuring that they receive the right assistance at the right time. So we are calling on you to stand up and join our walk for freedom by coming along to this year’s Walkathon.
