REB Storage System’s CEO Tom Lesko serves as Treasurer for Right To Be Free (RTBF).
RTBF is a non-profit organization that funds the rescue and rehabilitation of trafficked children in Africa and broadens public awareness of human trafficking, or modern-day slavery.
Right To Be Free rescues enslaved children in Ghana who is forced to work in the hazardous fishing and gold mining industries and the cocoa plantations. The organization helps rebuild their lives by providing victims with medical care, counseling, and placement in a school or vocational training.
In this month’s newsletter, RTBF features a story about Elijah, a boy that was rescued last July at the age of 10 along with four other boys. Their rescue was a collaboration with the Ghana Immigration Service and the Ghana Navy.
