CHENNAI, INDIA – Today, IJM helped local authorities rescue families from forced labor slavery in two rice mills. It was a joyful emancipation, and it was a reunion for families divided by the constraints of slavery.
Working with police and the government official in charge of the operation, IJM quickly identified the people enslaved in the first rice mill. They helped the children, women and men safely leave the rice mill, once and for all.
But when the rescue team arrived at the second rice mill, it was empty.
