Some mysterious strangers approached Claire Hababu during lunch hour one day and offered her a plane ticket to China. Soon, Claire was sitting in an Iranian jail cell, 3000 miles from her home in Uganda, awaiting death by hanging. This is the remarkable story of a woman whose faith moved prison doors and who now works with Love Justice International to save victims of human trafficking before they become slaves.

Episode 1.6: Six Beaded Bracelets

Every morning, Kika Sansago would walk to her elementary school in the Democratic Republic of Congo. But one day, she never made it. Instead, she woke up in a Heal Africa hospital bed and found something there that, years later, drew her back to the same hospital--this time, to bring healing to others. But first, she would have to face the ugliness of her past.
