In October 2014, actress
Emilia Fox kindly agreed to present a BBC Radio 4 Appeal on behalf of Unseen.
It featured Grace, who fled her native country in Africa having witnessed her
family being shot and killed in front of her. Grace arrived in the UK only to
then become a victim of human trafficking.
Emilia says: “After hearing Grace's story I wanted to be involved. She is a woman who has suffered horrifically at the hands of her traffickers. Unseen’s work is a vital lifeline to survivors like Grace – it is so important, and they have my wholehearted support as they continue to work with survivors of human trafficking and to look for ways of combatting modern slavery.”
We are delighted to say Emilia is now our Patron and supports Unseen at key events and campaigns each year.
