Participate in Raising Awareness
There are many ways you can help fight human trafficking and save victims who have been caught in the net of criminals. The simplest way is to talk about this issue and bring it forward in both private and public discussions. If you are a school student, you can choose the the Fight against Human Trafficking as one of your school research projects, so you can bring the phenomenon of human trafficking into focus, and highlight the methods of controlling and preventing it and the ways to help victims. If you are a university student, you can co-operate with your friends to hold an open day for human trafficking awareness. The Ewaa shelters and their partners can provide you with all the support you need to promote awareness of the phenomenon and define the ways and methods of preventing, and then, combatting it. Allocate space on your website to shed light on this serious humanitarian issue, or bring it up for discussion on Facebook and your favorite forums. Be sure to participate in the awareness campaigns of various concerned organisations.

But how to identify a victim of human trafficking?
Despite the difficulty of detecting victims of human trafficking because of the confidential and vague nature of this heinous crime, there are prime indicators that point to ‘exploitation.’ Potential victims will demonstrate the following characteristics:
  • They are never seen alone and seem to be constantly under surveillance.
  • There is always someone (with authority over them) who speaks on their behalf and takes decisions for them.
  • They have no authority or freedom over their movements or money.
  • They do not keep identification documents, and do not have health cards.
  • They do not have any contact with family or friends.
  • They are transferred to and from their place of work, or work where they live.
  • They work illegally long hours.
  • They do not receive financial reward for their work.
  • They work to repay a large debt to their employer and are not entitled to leave their job.
  • They live in overcrowded and unhealthy accommodation.
  • They only speak their native language, and do not understand English or Arabic.
  • They appear hesitant, confused, fearful and submissive.
  • They show signs of physical violence or pregnancy
  • They show signs of physical weakness and disease, such as anemia, diabetes, skin diseases... etc.
  • They are addicted to a particular drug
  • They do not attend school (in the case of children)
 
When you identify these indicators, here are some questions you can ask the person at risk:
But pay attention to confidentiality, and don't show an exaggerated interest.  
  • What job do you do?
  • How many hours do you work?
  • How much do you get paid for your work?
  • Can you leave your job if you want to?
  • Can you get out of the house on your own?
  • Where do you live, and what are the conditions like?
  • Are you in contact with your family?
  • Do you keep your identification documents and passport?
  • Is anyone threatening you or your family?
