Hey Lisa, have you heard about the recent increase of human trafficking happening in the town.?
Yes! it's horrible. Like how can you practice the illegally transporting of people from one place to another? For the purpose of forced labor or sexual exploitation.
Did you know that there are 40.3 million victims of human trafficking globally . 81% are in forced labor, 25% of them are children and 75% are women and girls.
Really?! I was recently reading an article saying sex trafficking victims often start as young at 14. Victims can sometimes be sold by their families into human trafficking.
what is the government doing to find a resolution to this horrible thing?
Yes! thankfully. the article described the united nations setting up a voluntary trust fund for victims and creating a plan of action , focusing on preventing trafficking, punishments for offenders and protecting of victims.
