  • HIS Life
    is Connected to Yours




    Ebenezer's daily existence consists of minimal food, 17-hour-long workdays, and torturous treatment. He is forced to swim deep underwater to unhook heavy, tangled nets. Several of his friends have never resurfaced.

    This may seem like a far-off reality, but the truth is, we are more connected to Ebenezer than we think. Slavery exists in the fishing industry all around the world. In fact, 25% of all fish caught in Ghana ends up in European markets.
