It’s sad but true: around the world, people are being bought, sold, and smuggled like modern-day slaves.
They are trapped in lives of misery – often beaten, starved, and forced to work as prostitutes or to take grueling jobs as migrant, domestic, restaurant, or factory workers with little or no pay.
We want to fight human trafficking – not only because of the personal and psychological toll it takes on society, but also because it facilitates the illegal movement of immigrants across borders and provides a ready source of income for organized crime groups and even terrorists.
Christopher P. “Doctor Love” Gilbert was a member of the Race Charity Team for five seasons. He went to Heaven on Sunday October 12th, 2014 at the age of 62. He had a tremendous love for his fiancée, Cheryl A. Graham of Oxford and he had a very giving heart. So, soon after I met him I started to call him Doctor Love. He liked the name “Dr. Love” and so it stuck.
Chris loved the cause of Race Charity, helping Orphans, Widows and victims of Human Trafficking. We sorely miss him. We have been blessed in knowing him and having him as part of the Race Charity Team.
