This candle supports the work of CRS to shine a light on and put an end to human trafficking and modern slavery.
With 21 million victims worldwide, there are more slaves today than at any time in history. Human traffickers prey on women and children, displaced persons, and those living in extreme poverty. It is a crime hidden in plain sight, perpetuated by people who take advantage of migrants seeking employment or escape from conflict.
With every purchase of this candle a donation is made to support CRS programs, and you help provide a living wage for women refugees in the United States.
If purchasing 30 or more CRS candles for fundraising, please email us!
Available in Teak & Sandalwood, Chamomile & Sage, Lime & Basil, Orange Blossom, or Unscented (completely fragrance-free). Candle arrives gift boxed with the name and signature of the woman who made it and a prayer card.

Candle - CRS Human Trafficking Candles are hand-poured by women refugees creating new lives for themselves and their families in the United States after loss of their homes, years living in refugee camps, and relocation through UN and federal programs. With every purchase, a donation is made to CRS to support its programs to shine a light on and end human trafficking around the world.
CRS- As the official international humanitarian agency of the Catholic community in the United States, Catholic Relief Services is working to eradicate human trafficking. It’s just one of the many ways we’re lifting up the world’s most vulnerable. We provide assistance to 107 million poor and disadvantaged people in 101 countries. Because when we can help people find meaningful, dignified work where they live, they are far less likely to risk believing promises of better lives elsewhere.
