Released Ghana slave Mercy was one of the guest speakers at special night at Tuesdays Church. The night was held to raise awareness of the problem of slavery. Mercy and Faustina talked about the program that lead to Mercy’s release and the vocational program provided by international aid agency – International Needs.
Over 25 people listened to the inspirational stories of these courageous women. The money raised on the night will support the release and training of the women in small home-based industries, like bread making and dress making, and vulnerable children by funding schools. Faustina is the Principal of one of the schools. Attached is a photo of Mercy, Glenda Farmer (Tuesdays Church co-ordinator), Faustina and Ian Neil (International Needs).
