Trafficking in Persons
Today, around 40.3 million people – more than at any time in our history – are living in some form of modern slavery.
Human trafficking is on the rise in South Africa and we are one of the top 10 trafficking source and destination countries in the world.
Human trafficking is the 3rd largest international crime, raking in billions of dollars each year. Human trafficking brings in more revenue than Google, Starbucks, Nike and the NFL combined.
In South Africa, trafficking victims are used for forced labor, sex trafficking, organ trafficking, illegal adoptions and many more.
