San Salvador - El Salvador will establish a National Council against Human Trafficking to assist the victims of the crime.

Manuel Melgar, Minister of Justice and Security, said it is hard to determine the extent of this scourge, but earlier legal action numbers the cases tried in more than 300.

The government brass said President Mauricio Funes will officially inaugurate the Council on returning Saturday from the 66th UN General Assembly in New York.

It consists of the Ministers of Foreign Affairs, Justice and Education, Health, the Secretary for Social Inclusion and the Institute for the Development of Women (ISDEMU).

The UN defines trafficking in humans as forcing a human -through abduction, threats, cheating or fraud- to engage in sexual, labor or any other form of slavery, reminds the Salvadoran media today.

"Commitment is what transforms a promise into reality. It is the words that speak boldly of your intentions and the actions which speak louder than words. It is making the time when there is none. It is coming through time after time, year after year. Commitment is the stuff character is made of, the power to change the face of things. It is the triumph of integrity over skepticism".

~Abraham Lincoln

GET INVOLVED!

 

These are some of the things you can do to help fight human trafficking:

Be informed! Educate yourself about human trafficking by reading about it. Follow events in the news. Keep your eyes open - human trafficking is happening all around us.

Raise awareness! Talk to friends, family and colleagues. You could even start talking to your local politicians and authorities.

Get involved! Participate in an anti-trafficking movement in your area and get involved in its activities and campaigns (e.g. hold events, distribute posters, leaflets etc.) in your neighborhood and in schools.

Encourage businesses! Be a responsible consumer! Inform yourself on the labour policies of companies to ensure their products are free from slave labour and other forms of exploitation. If possible, buy fair trade products.

Seek support! If you suspect that someone has been trafficked report it to the institutions or assistance facilities dealing with human trafficking in your area.

"It ought to concern every person, because it is a debasement of our common humanity. It ought to concern every community, because it tears at our social fabric. It ought to concern every business, because it distorts markets. It ought to concern every nation, because it endangers public health and fuels violence and organized crime. I’m talking about the injustice, the outrage, of human trafficking, which must be called by its true name -- modern slavery."

– President Barack OBAMA
