Surigao Norte advocates to launch war vs human trafficking

Surigao del Norte advocates are set to sign a covenant on Monday, March 1 declaring an all out-war against human trafficking

Representatives of various organizations from different sectors including faith-based organizations, multinational companies, marketing organizations, transport industries, communities, law enforcers, government agencies, private organizations, and media are in unison to stop the endless flow of Filipino women and children who are trapped in the hands of criminal traffickers and suffer inhumane treatment as sex slaves and bonded laborers, stripped of their freedom and dignity under the guise of safe migration.

The commitment signing is part of 2009 Women’s Month celebration activities of the province. This year's celebration is anchored on the theme "Babae, Yaman Ka Ng Bayan."

Visayan Forum Foundation Inc. (VFFI), an NGO who works for the protection and justice of the trafficked women and children, said the covenant will put into action the pledges of the different stakeholders to inform the public; report and prevent trafficking activities; and protect and empower victims of human trafficking.
