Committed to the cause.....

A global problem like trafficking needs a global solution.  The UN World Day against Trafficking in Persons aims to raise awareness, encourage vigilance and gain support for prevention of human trafficking.  Thousands of men, women and children end up in the hands of traffickers every year, often through being tricked and misled to believe that they are being taken to work that will make their family better off.  They lose their rights and identity and are used and exploited in numerous ways. 

The United Nations has produced a protocol to punish human trafficking which it aims to implement globally, as well as an act to protect victims of trafficking.

 

In Malaysia, Global Shepherds Berhad

The theme for this year’s World Day Against Trafficking focuses on the first responders to human trafficking.  Through a series of videos, Global Shepherds spotlights first responders – recognizing the importance of their work that they do, their challenges, and especially what motivates them and keeps them going.

In Singapore

Ms Nora Pang, Social Service Assistant, Ahuva Good Shepherd: Small Group Care (SGC) conducted a workshop to bring awareness to the residential children of the dangers of human trafficking and the plight of human trafficking victims. The workshop also helped the residents to identify real-life circumstances which they may experience that may put them at risk. The children were shown a cartoon video on ‘creative’ ways human traffickers may try to entice young children to be kidnapped.
