Protect children from exploitation
At AdultEscorts.ca we believe that children need to be sheltered from predatory low life criminals who profit from the vulnerability and desperation of their victims.
Human trafficking is defined as the purchasing & selling of human beings for various exploitative purposes — such a business thrives in times of conflict and crisis, based on a study of 142 countries published by the U.N. Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC).
“Human trafficking has taken on horrific dimensions as armed groups and terrorists use it to spread fear and gain victims to offer as incentives to recruit new fighters,” says Yury Fedotov, Executive Director of UNODC, citing child soldiers, forced labor and sexual slavery as examples.
It is still unclear how improvements in detection, recording and reporting methods have contributed to the increase, the conditions that put children in danger are clear. Leveraging wars, political corruption, extreme poverty and natural disasters to their benefit, traffickers are for creating a human trafficking market worth approximately $39 billion in trade, on the exploitation of children alone.
According to the most recent global estimates, 152,000,000 children are currently involved in child labor and 25,000,000 adults and children are in forced slave labor camps or as personal slaves, traded on global supply chains.
1 in 4 victims of today’s slavery are children.
From trafficking Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh, the exploitation of Central American and Maxican migrants heading for the US or Canada, the sexual enslavement of women and girls throughout Europe, or the forced labor of Africans or war refugees in the Middle East, desperate family members and individuals quite often think they have no choice but to risk exploitation in their struggle to survive.
