Hi. My name is Marga Fripp and I'm the chief pollinator of good at What Matters.

In Hope, Justice and Kindness

In Hope, Justice and Kindness

Join us in saying "NO" to labor trafficking by helping Fainess, a brave survivor, to help other women escape abuse, heal and access justice. Nearly 21 million people are victims of forced labor across the world. 

Fainess urgently needs help for critical dental treatment. 

With six missing teeth and multiple deep cavities, she lives with chronic pain and a shattered self-esteem. Fainess is a survivor of labor trafficking with no family, no dental insurance or support system in the US fighting every day to make ends meet. Many of her medical problems have developed while in captivity enslaved by a diplomat family.

Despite her challenges, Fainess remains undeterred. She serves as a volunteer to advocate for justice and empower survivors of labor and human trafficking. Funds will pay for dental treatment that includes cavity repair for eight broken teeth, a tooth-supported denture for the upper jaw and a partial denture for the lower jaw. 

I’ve met Fainess in 2013 while I was running Empowered Women International. She was a student member with our organization. We remained friends, and over the years I’ve witnessed with reverence her extraordinary perseverance to defy the odds, become a role model for others and make a difference in the world. 

Read the full story and join us in making a generous contribution. Please share this with your friends by email and social media. 

Together we can continue to stand for one another, and for the change we want to see in the world. Thank you so much for your generosity, kindness and support. 

Our journey continues. Onward and Upward!

Much love and gratitude,
Marga & Jesse Fripp
