Anti-trafficking hotline


UMCOR’s toll-free telephone hotline, which started in July 2004, is an effective means to reach vulnerable people, to provide immediate help to victims of trafficking, and to refer those who call about social and legal justice issues to relevant agencies. The hotline operators provide information related to trafficking, safe migration and assistance options from state and non-state agencies for employment and migration-related issues. The project lawyer provides consultations through the hotline, as well.

The hotline plays an important role not only as a prevention tool but also as a part of the victim referral process when victims are identified through the hotline and are then referred to the appropriate service providers for assistance.
