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.
