World Day Against Human Trafficking

Every country of the world is affected by human trafficking therefore it is everybody's responsibility to act against such horrible crime. An estimate of 21 million people are trapped in modern-day slavery: sexual slavery, forced labor, forced marriage and organ harvesting, including surrogacy and oval removal.

Take a photo of yourself forming a heart with your hands and take part in the campaign of solidarity #igivehope, a symbol of hope for the millions of human trafficking victims.

"Every country must join together to overcome this transnational threat by supporting and protecting victims while pursuing and prosecuting the criminals. On the World Day Against Trafficking in Persons, let us resolve to act as one in the name of justice and dignity for all."

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon
