Human trafficking is a global humanitarian crisis and the war in Ukraine is creating a breeding ground for trafficking. Here’s something you can do to help prevent human trafficking in Ukraine.
Since the war commenced, about 10 million people have been forced from their homes and communities and made to flee into neighboring countries. The vast majority of them are women and children. Most of them have no housing and they lack basic necessities like food, water and clothing. Even though the people of Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, and other countries have taken in many displaced people, but there are many nefarious elements that will attempt to take advantage and capitalize on those who haven’t been as fortunate.
The Life Preservers Project, a nonprofit devoted to eradicating human trafficking, together with the Association of Certified E-Discovery Specialists (ACEDS) and eDiscovery software company Relativity, are joining together to raise money for those displaced by the war in Ukraine. The hope is to raise money to provide direct relief to those impacted by this tragic war so that they have access to essential resources, food, and clothing.
You can get more information here and the site also provides a link to make a donation. In conjunction with Life Preservers Project, Relativity has agreed to match every dollar raised up to $1 million through Friday, April 29th. So, any donation you make to help prevent human trafficking in Ukraine by then will be doubled by Relativity!
Where will the money go? As stated: “Relativity is partnering with Razom, Direct Relief, and Polish Humanitarian Action via CAF America to receive match donations. These organizations have special projects in place to support humanitarian relief efforts for impacted Ukrainian refugees, such as providing food, clothing, and medical supplies. Each organization has been thoroughly vetted to ensure donations are appropriately and efficiently distributed.”
With that in mind, please consider donating to help prevent human trafficking in Ukraine. Thanks.
