WHAT IS HUMAN TRAFFICKING?
Human trafficking is the trade of humans for the purpose of forced labour, sexual slavery, or commercial sexual exploitation for the trafficker or others. This may encompass providing a spouse in the context of forced marriage, or the extraction of organs or tissues, including for surrogacy and ova removal. Human trafficking can occur within a country or trans-nationally.
Human trafficking is a crime against the person
CAUSES OF HUMAN TRAFICKING
Human trafficking is a global, complex, and heartbreaking issue. For approximately 40 million people, it’s not some obscure, disconnected concept that’s hard to comprehend; it’s a reality they’re forced to live in daily.
If we want to effectively contribute to the eradication of modern slavery, we must first understand what causes it and how it affects those involved. Only then can we start making strategic moves to stop human trafficking and truly help those in need.
EFFECTS OF HUMAN TRAFICKING
Human trafficking can have physical, emotional, and psychological effects on anyone involved. It has the power to impact someone’s life forever.
Here are some common ways human trafficking affects victims and perpetrators. As you read through this section, keep in mind that many traffickers also experience trauma because of what they see and do to others, and many traffickers have been victimized themselves at some point in their lives.
What You Can Do To Help
Here at Roost Foundation, we believe we all have a role to play in creating a free world. Our organization focuses on working with local police to find and free modern slaves and arrest traffickers, but there are numerous ways YOU can help fight human trafficking in your own community.
a) Bring awareness to your social circles so your friends and family know more about trafficking.
b) Consider volunteering with a local counter-trafficking organization.
c) Donate money to an organization that works on the front lines.
d) Call the National Human Trafficking Hotline if you notice suspicious activity.
e) Be a friend to someone who’s alone and vulnerable.
No action is too small. Never underestimate the difference you can make in someone’s life through one small act of kindness.
100% of Funds Contributed go to investigative, rescue and aftercare work on the front lines. Donations provide critical items such as investigative expenses, law enforcement support, medical bills and funds for social workers.
Your funds are used to deploy operatives alongside local law enforcement and aftercare workers. These men and women work on the front lines to help rescue survivors and arrest traffickers.
