30th July - World Day against Trafficking in Human Persons

Human trafficking is a form of modern slavery—a multi-billion dollar criminal industry that denies freedom to 20.9 million people around the world. And no matter where you live, chances are it's happening nearby. From the girl forced into prostitution at a truck stop, to the man discovered in a restaurant kitchen, stripped of his passport and held against his will. All trafficking victims share one essential experience: the loss of freedom.

Every year, millions of children, women and men fall into the hands of traffickers, lured by fake promises and deceit. Human trafficking has become a global multi-billion-dollar enterprise, affecting nearly every country in the world.

Today, there are millions of people whose liberty, dignity and essential human rights have been stolen. They are coerced into sexual exploitation, forced labour, domestic servitude, forced begging and stealing, and even compelled to "sell" skin and organs.

World Day against Trafficking in Human Persons was proclaimed by the United Nations in 2013 and since then, every year on July 30th, the world unites to recognize human trafficking as a serious crime and complete violation of human rights. It serves to raise awareness of human trafficking and the protection of victims' rights.  Human trafficking exploits humans by forcing them into sexual and labor slave trades. The International Labour Organization estimates that there 21 million victims of forced labor around the world. All countries are affected by human trafficking, participating as either countries of origin, transit or destination.
