Human Trafficking



Each year, an estimated 600,000 to 800,000, women, and children are trafficked across international borders (some international and non-governmental organizations place the number far higher), and the trade is growing.
In 2007, 27 million people are considered slaves in today’s modern society. The advent of technology does not seem to be the perfect setting for the barbaric state of slavery, but yes it is, and statistics will prove this fact.There is smuggling of people happening each year, worldwide, and it has now reached 800,000 victims.Women and children are still the favored target of human trafficking each year. They comprise 80% of the total number of people being trafficked.161 countries out of 192 (according to the United Nations) are involved with human trafficking.
