Caritas and Human Trafficking

Caritas and Human Trafficking
Caritas is committed to the fight against the sale of children, women and men into slavery as beggars, prostitutes and forced labourers. It is part of the COATNET network which fights against human trafficking.

Members of COATNET—Christian Organisations Against Trafficking in Human Beings—work together across borders to raise awareness about trafficking and to assist victims. COATNET fights the root causes, such as poverty and the lack of opportunity, while advocating for laws to protect victims, punish perpetrators and secure decent working conditions.

COATNET helps trafficking survivors start new lives.
