Pack of Wolves, NC State’s NIL collective, and National Coatings Are Teaming Up to Prevent Human Trafficking in Warzones
Human trafficking, or modern-day slavery, is prevalent in every corner of our world. But human trafficking is preventable, and access to clean water can stop trafficking before it starts.
This month, student athletes from NC State University’s Pack of Wolves NIL collective and National Coatings Inc, a premier commercial and industrial painting company headquartered in Raleigh, are teaming up to prevent human trafficking in one of the world’s hardest to reach places: South Sudan.
Together, they aim raise $20,000 to drill a well for Lift Up the Vulnerable (LUV). This New York-based non-profit prevents the human trafficking of vulnerable children and women in warzones and empowers them to be changemakers in their communities. Those interested in donating can go to National Coatings Fundraising Page for more information.
In war-torn South Sudan, human trafficking and exploitation are rampant due to extreme poverty and relentless conflict. Millions have been forced to flee, and infrastructure has been destroyed at every level, including education systems, food security, and clean water access. In these instances, already vulnerable children and women journey hours to fill up containers of river water for their families. Unfortunately, this daily walk for water puts them at high risk of being trafficked or injured, and most often, the water carries life-threatening diseases.
National Coatings and the Pack of Wolves will partner with Lift Up the Vulnerable to take a stand against human trafficking in South Sudan and provide safe access to water that will affect hundreds of lives in LUV’s anti-trafficking network.
Lift Up the Vulnerable (LUV) is on a mission to prevent the trafficking and oppression of vulnerable children and women in warzones. Since 2005, our leaders have a proven track record of effectively navigating and building partnerships in war-torn communities marked by violence and extreme poverty throughout Sudan and South Sudan. Our solution is a holistic model that provides protection, education, and economic development to eliminate the exploitation of vulnerabilities, provide freedom, and restore hope. We envision a world where vulnerable children and women are empowered and, through them, war-torn nations are transformed.
