Help us to Stamp It Out.
Victims, usually from poorer countries, are enticed to richer countries by promises of somewhere to live and a good job. Women and girls in particular, although boys and young men are trafficked too. These promises are false, they are only wanted for the sex industry.
On arrival in this country, their passports are taken away from them. They are raped, imprisoned and kept quiet by threats to their families at home and even death to themselves. In some cases they are introduced to drugs, which they then come to depend on, forcing them further into prostitution.
