In her message for the first-ever World Day Against Trafficking in Persons, the UN Special Rapporteur on human trafficking, especially women and children, Ms. Joy Ezeilo, said “Human beings, just like you and me, are trafficked every day for economic purposes, sexual exploitation or for removal of their organs. This heinous business must stop….If you are a corporation or a business, take action to ensure that your supply chain is free of human trafficking and that no one is held in forced labour. If you’re an individual, buy responsibly and avoid becoming part of the human trafficking chain. We must break the chain of human trafficking, this is my message to us all today.”
