    Being a slave is not something we can not stop,but those victims who will help them???some people even today they are slave in one way or another.But may be it is difficult to understand the meaning (SLAVE).and if you come from very poor country,and you are afraid of sending you back to your country!!that is the big problems,victim decide to close there mouth and hope may be one day things will be better.I do not know,some one must listen to the victims,and am not sure if anyone in Sweden will get help for that,especially poor girls,no one listen.My self I would like to do something about it.God bless you people.

    I think it's sad that they are only 2 latin american countries in the list.In Venezuela, Peru, Colombia they are a lot of children being trafficked.In Peru especialy.It would be nice to see some attention drawn to these countries where horrible stuff happens to young innocent children.

      Needed to draft you one very little raremk to help thank you over again over the striking techniques you have contributed at this time. This is simply pretty generous of you to give publicly just what some people might have marketed as an e-book to end up making some bucks on their own, primarily now that you could possibly have done it if you ever wanted. The thoughts in addition acted to become a fantastic way to fully grasp someone else have similar dreams the same as my personal own to grasp somewhat more when considering this issue. I think there are lots of more pleasurable situations ahead for individuals who check out your blog post.

    Slavery and human trafficking isn't going to end until we make it end. There just isn't enough activism currently in the world to be effective because there is still much denial and many governments don't see the exploitation and enslavement of their own people important enough to prioritise. We live in Hong Kong and the general population is extremely under informed about this issue which really is a shame considering Hong Kong's shameful Tier 2 classification on the Trafficking in Persons Report 2012. Things however are slowly changing; our group is working with Schools, Colleges and Universities; we hold presentations and workshops and invite guest speakers to address large audiences. We support NGOs in Cambodia and Nepal who investigate, rescue, rehabilitate, resettle and support survivors and our group takes with them their experiences all over the world and become activists. For anyone reading this – a little research will open up the reality that contemporary slavery and human trafficking needs to finally take its place in history as a disgraceful part of human exploitation of our own kind. We need to work together on this forgetting our cultural and religious differences so that the voiceless will never again experience their loss of freedom and human rights. If we all get active together and keep the momentum going, change will happen.

    'Stand in the Sinai' includes an interview with a female asylum seeker in Israel. She has been a resident of the women and children's shelter at the African Refugee Development Center (http://www.ardc-israel.org), which provides housing and psychosocial support for the most vulnerable members of the asylum seeker community in Israel.

    ARDC would be grateful to be added to the NGO list for Israel. Anyone reading this who would like to find out how they can help the trafficking victims who have arrived in Israel should check the website above.

Are you sure about the source?|What i do not understood is if truth be told how you're not actually much more smartly-favored than you may be now. You are very intelligent.

    Why cant we get to the Root of this problem instead of balming on top.

    I have a suggestion that all countries should come under some sort of UN organisation and trading could be carried only with countries who have a clean record on human slavery and child labour.Products and items should be banned if child is employed in the firm.We are going for many quality controls and ISO and environemental labels WHY DONT WE HAVE THIS ON OUR PRODUCTS .ITS AGAIN I FEEL AT UNEASE ABOUT VOICING THESE OVER AND OVER AGAINI

      Sadly there are no countries on our planet that are not involved in some form of slavery and human trafficking. An organisation styled on the UN I'm afraid won't work either because it will be too weak like the UN. What we need is to address gender discrimination, corruption within governments and honest business practices that don't exploit workers.
