Once you have spotted the signs of modern slavery, it is important to report it, as long as you are safe to do so. Notes on keeping yourself and your church safe will be available on this page this month. To end human trafficking the perpetrators must be prosecuted and brought to justice.
Stop the Traffik have a list of helplines in some countries that you can ring to report trafficking and modern slavery on their website at: https://www.stopthetraffik.org/share-information/contact-authorities/
You can also share information anonymously on the Stop the Traffik website at https://www.stopthetraffik.org/share-information or download the ‘Stop App’ to do the same.
The information is being used to gather data on trafficking and help prevent it in the most vulnerable communities. It is not designed to help individual victims – for that you need to contact a local helpline or appropriate authority.
Remember your safety comes first.
Focus on: The Middle East
This month we will be sharing news and resources on how the churches in the Middle East are engaging in the fight against human trafficking.
