According to the U.S. State Department, there are roughly 25 million victims of human trafficking worldwide. Trafficking is one of the greatest human rights challenges of this century, both in the United States and around the world.
A woman in Mississippi named Helen Brown decided to do something to help change this. She had a vision and a dream to help others and better Mississippi. She said she dreamed of an organization that would not only bring awareness, but also provide tools that would help survivors of Human Trafficking, Sexual Assault, and Domestic Violence to heal.
Helen decided to start an organization called “No More Tears”. She founded this nonprofit, based in Mississippi, in 2017. The nonprofit is comprised of 100% volunteer labor and is funded from corporate donations and private fundraising events.
Some of the services this organization provides for victims are items such as clothing, school supplies, household items, groceries, toiletries, as well as a safe place for them, dental and medical care assistance, rental assistance, temporary transportation, and even educational support.
Their mission is:
“Our mission is to provide survivors with the tools that will allow them to become independent. No More Tears inspires to empower victims of Human Trafficking, Sexual Assault, and Domestic Violence.”
Helen said that the funds received allow them to provide compassionate and individualized service. That is what makes the organization different from others.
