These Two Ethiopian Women Survived Trafficking
An ever-present danger for irregular migrants in the Horn of Africa is the fear of being trafficked: a very real possibility, especially for women and children.
In most cases, victims of trafficking (VOT) are drawn by the false promise of a lucrative job, or a better opportunity for them and their loved ones. Their documents are usually confiscated. The victims are kept away from the outside world and made to work with little or no pay, sometimes in the sex trade.
