Get Involved in ending sex trafficking
Like Anya17, an estimated 800,000 young women and children are deceived and trafficked into the EU every year to fuel the growing sex trade. Repeatedly gang raped and beaten, the girls can be forced to work for 16 hours, having sex with up to 30 men a day. It's happening every day… on your doorstep, so get involved!
Here's how you can help to end modern day slavery:
