Desta (pictured above) had been sold into slavery in Ethiopia, and trafficked through Sudan to the Bedouin torture camps in northern Sinai. There, along with hundreds of others from Ethiopa and Eritrea, she was raped and tortured until her family agreed to pay a ransom. Released by her captors, she crossed the Israeli border and found refuge in the Ma’agan Safe House for trafficked women, where she joined the Voice of Freedom project.

Voice of Freedom works with African women who have escaped slavery, teaching them photography so that they can explore and share their experiences. It is unique in that it brings the voices of the formerly enslaved to a wide public for the very first time.
