HOW COVID-19 AFFECTS HUMAN TRAFFICKING:
COVID-19 has impacted us all and has made life all the more fragile for trafficking victims and people in red-light districts. During this global pandemic, we are working to protect the most vulnerable women and children and you can help when it matters most.
In the search for silver lining: Coronavirus has created a unique moment in the fight against human trafficking. For the first time in decades, it has caused brothels and bars to shut down completely. This has left many trafficked women homeless and vulnerable. We are working to reach these women, and provide them with food, hygiene items and information on what a life outside of trafficking could look like.
THE REAL-TIME RESPONSE AND RELIEF
Our Local Partners are protecting those in our care by providing food, medical care, and safe shelter. All 40 of our safe homes are in quarantine.
