IN SHORT

Anti-trafficking campaign continues

A CONTINUING campaign by the International Organization for Migration (IOM) warns women of the dangers of working abroad and educates them on the risks they need to look out for before going abroad.

The campaign is called Get Informed Before it is too Late.

The IOM has set up an information phone line for women who want to find out about potential employers they have found abroad.

Zuzana Vatráľová from the IOM said that the phone operators at the number 0850 111 321 will also be able to provide women with legal advice and other useful information.

The information campaign started in June 2003 and is focused on young women aged between 16 and 24, who, according to statistics, are the most typical victims of traffickers.
