What does it cost CSI to free each slave?

It costs CSI $109 to help emancipate a slave and provide him or her with essential humanitarian aid. For nearly a decade, CSI paid 50,000 Sudanese pounds for the liberation and return of a slave. In local terms, that is the purchase price of two goats.  In U.S. currency the value has ranged over the years between $50 and $35.  At the present time, CSI does not exchange cash for slaves. Instead, we make cattle vaccine available to slave-owning cattle camp Arabs.
