Every year 2 million girls aged between 5 and 15 are coerced, abducted, sold or trafficked into the illegal sex market.

UN figures suggest that between 200-300,000 women are trafficked to Europe every year.

Well over $7 billion a year is generated from sex trade trafficking.

Current global figures indicate 200 million people are held in various forms of slavery.

Some four million people are trafficked globally today: 4% of all the world’s migrants.

Two million children every year become victims of paedophiles and their networks as global demand for child pornography and child prostitution escalates.
