'Stop the Trafficking, Stop the Tears, Free Them from their Tormented Years'
The prime objective of the Purple Teardrop Campaign is to promote human rights and its focus is the infringement of human rights suffered by the victims of people trafficking. In turn, the Campaign has four main aims:
- Raise awareness among the general public of the plight of women and children who are trafficked
- Try to suppress the demand for trafficked women by making men who use prostitutes aware that they could be contributing to this trade
- Promote the Crimestoppers number, 0800 555 111, so that members of the public can give confidential information on locations where they think trafficked women are being exploited
- Support the safe houses which provide holistic care for victims who have been freed from trafficking
There are many ways in which you can contribute to help us achieve the Purple Teardrop Campaign aims:
- Stay informed – more detailed information is on our ‘What is Human Trafficking’ page and the Resources section includes links to key organisations with similar objectives to our own
