YouCanFree.Us

YouCanFree.Us is an international human rights organization that exists to combat human trafficking by rescuing women out of slavery and commercial exploitation from red light districts.  Our biggest operations are in India; the nation most critically affected by the plight of human trafficking.  Our most recent intervention has been in Poland where we are combatting the scourge of human trafficking. After physically rescuing women from inhumane living conditions in the brothels, we bring them to our safe house where we provide psychosocial care, holistic healing and vocational training to aid them in re-entry to society.  In addition to our India and Poland operations, we have recently conducted awareness efforts in the U.S., Canada, Romania and South Africa.

Bio

Has there been a season in your life when you were dangerously comfortable and God shook you to your core and redirected your steps?

I was in such a season in early 2010 when God brought me face-to-face with human suffering at the hands of human trafficking. I was touring with a group, and we visited GB Road, New Delhi, the red light district of India’s capital city, when I fell upon an evil unlike anything I had ever seen.  It was here my life’s work began.

Has there been a season in your life when you were dangerously comfortable and God shook you to your core and redirected your steps?

I was in such a season in early 2010 when God brought me face-to-face with human suffering at the hands of human trafficking. I was touring with a group, and we visited GB Road, New Delhi, the red light district of India’s capital city, when I fell upon an evil unlike anything I had ever seen.  It was here my life’s work began.

Up to this point, I was not a stranger to suffering.  I am from India and have seen time and again the poverty and human depravation that pervades the nation of my birth.  I had been to the museums and memorials built in Europe that tell the story of Hitler’s reign of horror over Europe. I have talked to children in Omagh, Northern Ireland who lost family members to the etho-nationalist violence there.  On September 11, 2001, my wife and I were working in the World Trade Center in New York City when terrorists attacked America.  The suffering I witnessed as the innocent victims around me died, has been, for me, a personal suffering.  I survived to remember that day.

Those were very dark days.  The day I walked down GB Road, I experienced something different.  I chanced upon a great horror, and I heard an inner voice telling me to do something about it.  “Be the light in this dark place,” the voice compelled. 

I founded YouCanFree.Us in 2010.  I just knew I was exposed to this horror because I had to do something and although I had no idea what to do, I knew I could find friends and people and invite them to join the fight with me.  Together we could make a difference.

And that has happened.  YouCanFree.Us is a dynamic team of people around the world who are passionate to end human trafficking. We have been so blessed that so many have committed to joining this fight with us.

The words of Albert Einstein has inspired me and I hope it will to you too “The world is a dangerous place to live, not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it.”

Let’s do something about this evil,
