400+ rescued from labour trafficking


Over 400 men, women and children have been rescued from international labour trafficking since June. Among those rescued were 76 children, some as young as 14 years old.

All had been lured out of Thailand by false job offers and ended up being forced to work in scamming call centers. Their working conditions were brutal – survivors reported being held against their will and electrocuted or subjected to solitary confinement as discipline.

Our rescue team in Thailand has been working tirelessly on these cases since June, in collaboration with other non-profit organizations and government agencies. Their work to rescue these 400+ lives included investigation, rescue operations, travel coordination to repatriate survivors and interviewing assistance.
