FTS Congo radio spot leads to freedom

A radio was one of the few contacts with the outside world for three Congolese village girls who had been lured with the promise of jobs as waitresses only to find that the cafe was actually a brothel. Along with many general ads was one from Free the Slaves alerting the girls that there was a Community Protection Committee in that area. Somehow one of the girls was able to contact a member of the committee who called the police.  The girls were freed and their rescue led to the closure of not only the place they were held at but also six others. It is very heartening to see these community based organizations really stepping up and producing results around the world.
