Fight Trafficking: What to do in the European Union?
They are forced into sexual slavery, their organs are removed, they are exploited in the workplace. These are just some of the realities of the people who fall victim to human trafficking. Caritas members are currently at a meeting in Paris to urge the current French Presidency of the EU to raise awareness about the risks posed to vulnerable people by trafficking.
Here are some of the pictures from an accompanying photo exhibition which tells the stories of trafficking victims.
