Helping Trafficking Survivors on the Journey Home
On May 11, 2015, at Phnom Penh International Airport, 59 fishermen returned home — some for the first time in five years. The men had suffered as modern day slaves on fishing vessels on the waters surrounding Indonesia.
Through the USAID-funded Counter Trafficking in Persons (CTIP) program in Camobodia, and the work of USAID partners Winrock International and the International Organization for Migration, these survivors are now being reunited with their families. They will continue to receive support from CTIP project partners as they reintegrate and reconnect with their communities.
