I have not written about child rape as a part of…

Male victims of Human Trafficking

i Jan 21st No Comments by

Today I would like to share some videos about trafficked men. I often find that they are forgotten in the debates and fight against Human Trafficking. I hope that these videos will give you an idea of what men are trafficked for and what life is like as a male victim of Human Trafficking. I also hope that it will inspire you to include them in your own debates and fight against Human Trafficking.

Our Dear Children

i Dec 16th No Comments by

Hello dear readers. This is my first blog in a while. Not because I have not wanted to write or have forgotten the importance of giving a voice to victims of human trafficking, but because I have just given birth to a beautiful little daughter and she has taken up all of my time and energy.
