Social media and human trafficking

A new video from IOM explains the connection between human trafficking and social media. It’s something that traffickers use primarily for recruitment, but we also use it to fight human trafficking; to create awareness and get in touch with victims and hopefully ensure they are rescued.

Yesterday we were actually able to rescue a young girl who had been trafficked for domestic servitude and she was also physically, psychologically and sexually abused. We found her through facebook and we managed to rescue her together with the local authorities and she is now in a shelter.
