Kingston Somali community is working closely with the local authorities in stopping human trafficking.
HUMAN TRAFFICKING IS...
To be deceived or taken against your will, bought, sold and exploited.
People are bought and sold for sexual exploitation, forced labour, street crime, domestic servitude or even the sale of organs and human sacrifice. Men, women and children are trafficked within their own countries and across international borders. Trafficking affects every continent and every country.
