Listen to survivors to stamp out human sex-trafficking

Every day, thousands of people are trafficked — sold a dream of a better future, to only be presented with a grim reality of entrapment, slavery, and often sex work. With their passports withheld, their movements restricted, and subject to abuse, inhumane treatment and debt bondage, victims face dire prospects.

Most girls and women only manage to escape their traffickers a long time after their souls and bodies have been destroyed. The three women we recently rescued from the United Arab Emirates and repatriated home to Nigeria all have harrowing stories and face a long journey ahead to overcome their trauma and build back their lives.
