Winston Siljeur is a musician whose music will be helping a couple take on the task of ministering to women and children threatened by human trafficking and ­slavery.

On Saturday 13 May he is hosting a special concert to help Albert and Melody Erwee move their family to join up with the Liberty Project in Mozambique where they will serve as pastors serving women and children who were involved in or are victims of human trafficking.

“I was very moved when I heard the story of how this family wanted to leave the comforts of their Helderberg home and help these people in need,” he says.

“They are leaving at the end of May and I have been blessed by having artists like Julani J, Jesse Jordan, Didi Jooste and Sammy Webber joining me in this concert to help them.”

ConcertThe concert, starting at 19:00, is sponsored by Paul Bothers and will be taking place at the New Generation Church, 13 Derrick Road in Somerset West Business Park.

Tickets cost R120 presold or R150 at the door. Drinks and snacks will be served.

Melody Erwee says they feel blessed that Siljeur is helping them.

“In March this year we received an invitation to become the worship pastors of the Liberty Project, a ministry that is rooted in seeing the captive set free – a vision and mission we shared.

“We are giving it all up and going to Pemba, Mozambique to work as volunteers for this project.

“God has also placed it upon our hearts to network with and serve other ministries that are involved in the fight against human trafficking and sexual slavery such as the organisation called STOP which creates awareness of the ongoing terror that occurs right under our noses.

“This is a sad but serious reality we face today.”
