"When we look at human trafficking, we always think that it's far away from us."

- Du Yun (www.brainyquote.com)


Child Trafficking is an underrated crime in the Philippines. In a country where the war to end illegal drugs is the current biggest issue, it certainly steals the light for some underrated but widespread crime in the country. The lives and future of the children that are victims of Child Trafficking are at risk and sadly, there is not enough attention given to the issue resulting to the continuity of the crime across the country.

 

According to UNICEF, " Trafficking victims are promised jobs such as domestic helpers or entertainers. Unware of the dangers ahead, children often have their own aspirations of wanting to see the big cities, helping their siblings and family, acquiring material gains, going to Japan as “entertainers”, and improving their physical appearance.

Children are commonly trafficked for exploitation in the sex trade - an estimated 60,000 to 100,000 children in the Philippines are involved in prostitution rings. There is a highincidence of child prostition in tourist areas. An undetermined number of children are forced into exploitative labor operations."
