At this time of the COVID-19 Pandemic, there are hundreds of thousands of people who are still trapped in slavery throughout the world, experiencing abuse and violence and at risk of contracting the CORONA virus and becoming ill. Exploitation and criminality will not stop, and it is anticipated that the situation for potential victims may get worse, due to the desperation and vulnerability that so many people are now facing, and the many opportunities for criminals to take advantage of those in need.
With this in mind, it is vital that the work continues, and the strategies against modern slavery and human trafficking are developed on international and local levels. Consisting of a collation of a wide range of links to reports and organisations worldwide, the information provided in this document ‘’Modern Slavery/Human Trafficking update,’’ has been produced by the Haven of Light through various means. The collated document provides a selective summary of recent news and updates, focusing on the subjects of modern slavery, human trafficking, exploitation, and related issues, in the UK and internationally.
