LUNGSOD NG HENERAL SANTOS, Marso 16 (PIA) – Nakiisa ang lokal na pamahalaan ng lungsod sa laban kontra human trafficking at sa tinatawag na “modern day slavery.”

 

Ayon sa ulat ng City Public Information Office (CPIO) nilagdaan sa pagitan ni Mayor Ronnel Rivera at Visayan Forum Foundation Inc. (VFFI) executive director, Ma. Cecilia Oebanda-Pacis nitong Martes ang isang Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) upang maisulong ang kamalayan laban sa nasabing problemang panlipunan.

 

Ang nilagdaang pagkakaunawaan ay isinagawa sa SM City Gensan Trade Hall kasabay ng “My Freedom Day campaign” na inorganisa ng VFFI na naglalayong wakasan ang ilegal na pangangalakal ng mga tao para sa “forced labor, sexual exploitation, at human slavery.”

 

Dagdag pa sa ulat, nagbigay din ng mensahe si Rivera, bilang bagong IFIGHT ambassador, at nagpahayag ito ng suporta sa mga adhikain ng VFFI upang makapagbigay ng tamang kaalaman sa mga mamamayan kung paano mahahadlangan ang naturang problemang pang global.

 

Ang IFIGHT Movement ay isa sa apat na pangunahing estratehiya ng VFFI katuwang ang mga eskwelahan, faith-based organization, at mga LGUs, upang mapalakas ang kamalayan ng mga kabataan sa naturang isyu, maipakita sa mga ito ang iba’t-ibang estilo kung paano ito isinasagawa ng mga mambibiktima, at ano ang tamang gawin sakaling makakaharap ang ganitong klaseng sitwasyon.

 

Ayon sa datos ng VFFI, ang Pilipinas ay mayroong tinatayang 410,000 na mga biktima ng modern slavery base sa Global Slavery Index 2016 ng Inter-Agency Council Against Trafficking (IACAT). (PGFruylan/PIA12-Gensan)
