21 million people worldwide have been enslaved by human traffickers.

“This undoubtedly, represents an alarming threat to international peace and security. It undermines the rule of law, robs millions of
their dignity and freedom, enriches transnational criminals and terrorists, and threatens public safety across nations.

the ills of Human Trafficking and a Fundraiser geared at engaging industry stakeholders, the flashpoint demography and the Government, to commit to working together in line with the Global Goals of United Nations against the trafficking of persons.

“Using valuable partnerships with the Department of Justice and Equality,Irelands and the Office of the Deputy Senate President of Nigeria, the
GEPCare Foundation aims to use this summit to bring more awareness and shine more light on this stigma, whilst seeking ways to reduce it to its possible minimum,” the organisers said.
