WHY FEBRUARY 22ND?

FEBRUARY 22ND IS HUMAN TRAFFICKING AWARENESS DAY


“Despite the considerable efforts of Governments, civil society and the international community, we still live in a world blighted by slavery and slavery-like practices. Millions of human beings are subjected to an existence that is almost unfathomable in its degradation and inhumanity.
Debt bondage, serfdom and forced labour; trafficking in persons and trafficking for the purpose of organ removal; sexual exploitation, the worst forms of child labour, forced marriage, the sale of wives, widow inheritance, and the forced recruitment of children for use in armed conflict - these are among the manifestations of slavery today. All are crimes and egregious violations of human rights”
— Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime
