Sahbu to Attempt Rescue of Two Liberian Girls from Slavery: Clarification
PR Log - Jan 24, 2013 - PLEASANT GROVE, Utah, Sahbu requests to clarify the release previously distributed on Wednesday, January 23, regarding its first-ever rescue mission to release two children from captivity-forced labor in Monrovia, Liberia. For clarification purposes, Sahbu wishes to state that Liberia is a free country and does not allow or condone slavery.

Slavery is highly illegal in Liberia and its neighboring countries, and the Liberian government prosecutes perpetrators of slavery and is proactively working to eliminate child labor in all of its forms.

Mr. Weight learned of two young girls on a trip to Liberia last October. He met many children, including Zoe and Baby that are illegally enslaved, and is determined to rescue them. Sahbu hopes to work closely with the Liberian government to help free children like Zoe and Baby, so the criminals that are involved can be prosecuted and the children can be freed.

Sahbu provides food, education, and mental health services to children in need. The nonprofit strives to help Liberian children receive the education necessary to have a normal and productive life. This trip is one of many planned for 2013.
