Safe on the run

This flyer from CoMensha gives some tips on how to be safe on the run. The flyer contains information on recognising the risks of exploitation and human trafficking. The European Commission has also made videos about recognising these risks. These videos are available in English, Ukrainian and Russian.


International

La Strada International is a European platform for organizations outside the Netherlands that provide assistance to victims of human trafficking.


Assistance and aid for victims of human trafficing and prostitution

Scarlet Cord provides assistance and aid to prostitutes, victims of human trafficking and girls who are dealing with loverboys.


Ensuring safety in cabs

Keep your family and friends well informed of your current location when using cabs or minivans owned by private individuals. If you do not trust the situation, exit the vehicle if possible and contact your friends, family or the police. Preferably use public transport.
