Generally the most vulnerable people become the victims of the traffickers: children, women, and immigrants. Human trafficking is a global problem, we can find large number stories across the whole world. There’s no a country where traffickers wouldn’t turn up.
We can read various stories about people who are sold by their own family, young girls whose “boyfriends” turn to be traffickers, or families who have modern slaves from the other parts of the world.
