Stop the Trafficked

Masud was 12. His parents were persuaded, tricked, to let him be taken from his home in Bangladesh to a new life in England. He was sold – ‘Trafficked’.

He left his family home with an unknown man who travelled with him to London then onto the South West where he was abandoned in an Indian restaurant. To survive he worked in the restaurants living in small store rooms, sleeping next to jars of chutney and bags of onions. Sometimes when there was no work he was forced to sleep on the streets. He was not able to go to school and his life was controlled by the restaurant owners.

When he was 28, with the help of STOP THE TRAFFIK he contacted the local police and immigration team who helped him to obtain a passport and identity documents, resulting in him being able to return the Bangladesh to obtain a UK visa and to be reunited with his family.

Masud is now living legally in the UK. He is married and is building a new life away from the restaurants.

Stories like name Masud’s are happening all the time, making People Trafficking the world’s fastest growing illegal trade.

We have to act now to stop it.

People trafficking is wrong. I support STOP THE TRAFFIK in its call to:

* Prevent The Sale of People
* Protect The Trafficked
* Prosecute The Trafficker
