The International Organization for Migration (IOM) in Kuwait continues its awareness campaign on human trafficking under the auspices of the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Interior Sheikh Mohammed Khaled Al-Hamad Al-Sabah.

IOM Kuwait Chief of Mission Iman Ereiqat praised the positive interaction received so far from the public, saying, “To prevent trafficking in persons, awareness is an essential tool allowing the community to come together to fight the illegal practices conducted by the few. We very much appreciate the support of the shopping malls’ management in hosting the awareness campaign booths, and contributing towards raising public awareness on human trafficking.”

Throughout the campaign, IOM staff is available to answer questions about what human trafficking is and current counter trafficking efforts being undertaken in Kuwait. Additionally, 4 pamphlets developed by Ministry of Interior and IOM are available, which contain information on the crime of human trafficking and the efforts of Kuwait with the International Organization for Migration in this field.

According to the US State Department, human trafficking is the third most prevalent crime in the world, making this awareness campaign particularly timely.

Who: International Organization for Migration in Kuwait and the Ministry of Interior
What: Second awareness raising campaign about trafficking in persons
Why: To raise general awareness about the issue of human trafficking as well as the government of Kuwait’s efforts to combat it
