Migration: A Measure of Humanity’s Dignity
#formigration

IOM rose from the ashes of World War Two 65 years ago. In the battle-scarred continent of Europe, no government alone could help survivors who wanted no more than an opportunity to resume their lives in freedom and with dignity. The first incarnation of IOM was created to resettle refugees during this post-war period.

What is the price of a human being? -campaign

Body: 

Finland - IOM Helsinki has launched a new counter trafficking public information campaign: “What is the price of a human being?”

Human trafficking in Finland includes labour exploitation and sexual abuse. Reported victims have been both Finnish and foreign nationals.

“The campaign aims to educate the citizens, especially youth about human trafficking and to inform people about responsible consumerism to reduce demand. Raising awareness is key to identify victims,” said IOM Helsinki campaign coordinator Tuija von der Pütten.
