We may think slavery is a thing of the past. But today and every day, an estimated 30 million women, children and men are the victims of human trafficking all over the world. Many are forced into prostitution and domestic servitude. Some are child soldiers or child brides. Others are coerced into inhumane working conditions. There are many forms of human trafficking but essentially it is a modern form of slavery in which individuals are held against their will and deprived of their basic freedoms.
