Aide aux victimes de la traite humaine à fins d'exploitation sexuelle
Every year, the “Table de concertation sur les agressions à caractère sexuel de Montréal” estimates there are about 16,000 victims of human trafficking for sexual exploitation in Canada . Most of them are women and children who have been violated, manipulated and forced into the sex trade, very often under false promises and illusions. Quebec, with Montreal in particular, is an internationally recognized hub for human trafficking for sexual exploitation. Montreal’s attraction as a sex tourism destination is due in part to its diversity of “offered services”, a lower Canadian dollar, its proximity to the American border as well as the city’s numerous sports events and variety of festivals .
La Maison de Mélanie helps victims of sexual exploitation and their parents, through a direct, hands-on approach.
La Maison de Mélanie supports those who wish to get out of the sex trade or those who wish to regain control over their lives by offering services such as:
• Support in crisis situations via a 24/7 hotline and in-person meetings
• Emergency lodging (short-term) and support for basic needs (food, personal hygiene, basic clothing)
• Individual accompaniment to medical appointments
• Guidance through legal procedures
Our campaign’s objective is to raise $5,000 before the end of 2017. For each dollar donated before December 31, 2017, Hana Co. will donate another $0.50, until the objective of $5,000 is met.
