Rescued From Human Trafficking in Singapore
SDG 16: Peace, Justice and Institutions • 7m 18s
Human trafficking happens in Singapore. It is real and fiercely alive; a heinous crime that has devastated millions of innocent lives. The scary truth is – each and every one of us could become a victim of trafficking, especially in our globalised society now. Few ever escape and many remain entrapped in sex work, forced labour or exploitative employment conditions. By learning how to recognise signs of a victim, we will be better equipped to provide help, or even better; prevent a tragedy. A story by Our Better World – telling stories of good to inspire action.
