There are an estimated 35.8 million people held in slavery today according to the 2014 Global Slavery Index. It is hard to imagine what it feels like to be owned by somebody else, with no hope of escape. Thankfully, there are individuals and organisations around the world who are doing so much to change this. One of these organisations is IJM (International Justice Mission). IJM protects the poor from violence throughout the developing world.
Back in 2013, we had the privilege of participating in the making of an album to raise funds for IJM. This recording features songs from ourselves, Brian Doerksen, David Ruis, Lothar Kosse, Judy Bailey, Sarah Brendel, Stefanie Heinen and Bene Müller. The album - 'Songs for Justice' - is a great collection of songs and can be purchased on iTunes. All the money raised from sales, goes to IJM, to support their vital work.
You can listen to our 2 tracks on our Music section of the website and if you purchase from us, all the money goes to IJM.
We had a lot of fun working together at Castle Rohrsdorf Studio, near Dresden, Germany, as this video shows.
