STORIES OF PEOPLE WORKING ON THE FRONTLINE
TO END HUMAN TRAFFICKING

Sarah Al Tamimi,
Vice-Chair of the National Committee to Combat Human Trafficking, Saudi Arabia

  I joined the fight against human trafficking when I became a member of the National Committee in October 2019, where one of my responsibilities was developing the Committee’s strategy. In February 2020, I was appointed the Committee’s Vice-Chair. My work includes a lot of coordination with various ministries and authorities which all work together as part of a concerted national team.

“COMMITTED TO THE CAUSE -
WORKING ON THE FRONTLINE TO END HUMAN TRAFFICKING"

The 2020 theme for the World Day Against Trafficking in Persons will focus on the first responders to human trafficking. These are the people who work in different sectors - identifying, supporting, counselling and seeking justice for victims of trafficking, and challenging the impunity of the traffickers.

During the COVID-19 crisis, the essential role of first responders has become even more important. Particularly as the restrictions imposed by the pandemic have made their work even more difficult. Still, their contribution is often overlooked and unrecognized.

Through stories from first responders describing their practical work in assisting victims UNODC intends to spotlight their contribution and that of their function, institution, organization, team or community and its impact on fighting trafficking.

 

How you can get involved:

  • Highlight the work of first responders in your country, community or organization;
  • Share, like and comment on the social media messages for the World Day,
  • Donate to the United Nations Voluntary Trust Fund for Victims of Human Trafficking, which provides on-the-ground assistance and protection to victims of trafficking.

 

Please use the hashtags #EndHumanTrafficking and #HumanTrafficking on all digital platforms.
