Blue Heart Day 1024 612 Chris Wells

July 30th is Blue Heart Day; the UN World Day against Trafficking in Persons. Human Trafficking is the recruitment, transportation, transfer, harbouring or receipt of people through force, fraud or deception for exploitation. In every region of the world, traffickers exploit vulnerable women, girls, men, and boys of all backgrounds for profit.

Even without knowing, we might have come across its victims and at the airport we should be continuously vigilant to ensure that we can help those who are being trafficked.

Traffickers often use violence, blackmail, emotional manipulation, removal of official documents, fraudulent employment agencies, and fake promises of education and job opportunities to trick and coerce their victims.

It’s good to raise awareness on July 30th but trafficking happens all the time!
