Barbados: The Government has launched a Human Trafficking Sensitisation Campaign to educate the public about this serious crime that impacts the globe. 

The announcement was made by the government of Barbados on Wednesday, March 16, 2022. The main objective of the campaign is to educate people and create awareness among Barbadians about the harsh impact of evil practices. 

Moreover, the government also wanted to warn all the people involved in such types of practices by launching such campaigns. 

The campaign would primarily focus on the school children who are under age and visitors as well. This sensitisation and education campaign will target all members of society, including primary school children and visitors.

While informing about the campaign, the government noted, “The Government has launched a Human Trafficking Sensitisation Campaign to educate the public about this serious crime that impacts the globe. This sensitisation and education campaign will target all members of society, including primary school children and visitors”.

Further, to protect and ensure all the safety measures, the government has provided helpline number 430-7332 or 430-7333 and the crisis Hotline at 435-8222 or 287-9344 or email sexcrimesandtrafficking@rbpf.gov.bb

“If you know or have evidence of someone being trafficked, call the Barbados Police Service at 430-7332 or 430-7333; the Crisis Hotline at 435-8222 or 287-9344 or email sexcrimesandtrafficking@rbpf.gov.bb”, the government mentioned. 

Further, the government shared various aspects of human trafficking and affirmed that” People who are being trafficked are threatened that if they tell anyone, they’re, or their families will be hurt; they do not see themselves as a trafficked person or victim; they may have complex relationships with their traffickers that involve deep levels of psychological conditioning based on fear or misplace feelings of love”.

In March 2021The Cabinet of Barbados approved an anti-trafficking national action plan. It was implemented in collaboration with two foreign governments, and was disclosed through a press release. The government informed that it has allocated around 125,000 BDS (or $61.880) to implement the plan for the next two years.
