All royalties from sales of ‘Mapping Faith’ will be donated to the Helen Bamber Foundation. The Helen Bamber Foundation is a UK-based charity that supports people who have survived extreme physical, sexual and psychological violence. The people it works with have been subjected to the worst kind of atrocities, including torture, trafficking, religious and political persecution, forced labour, sexual exploitation, gender-based and honour-based violence.
The work of the Foundation responds powerfully to the themes that many contributors explore in ‘Mapping Faith’.
