WHAT IS TRAFFIKING?

... BEING BOUGHT & SOLD AGAINST YOUR WILL

To be deceived or taken against your will, bought, sold and transported into slavery. For sexual exploitation, forced begging, sacrificial worship or removal of human organs, as child brides or into sweat shops, circuses, farm labour and domestic servitude.

TRAFFIKINK IS GROWING AT AN ALARMING RATE

9.1 million men, women and children are trafficked across borders and within their own country at any given moment in time. It is the worlds fastest growing global crime. Victims are coerced. Many suffer repeated physical abuse, fear, torture and/or threats to their family. These tactics are used by traffickers to break a persons spirit and enable the trafficker to continue to exert power over those they have trafficked.
