Press Release Summary = The largest online Beauty Pageant, www.TheWMBW.com, has announced its intention of entering the ring in the battle against Human Trafficking. A full 50% of all advertising revenues will donated to help tip the scales in favor of the Woman and Children who are affected by this ever growing epidemic.
Press Release Body = From Himalayan villages to Eastern European cities, from the West coast of Vancouver, Canada to the most Southern tip of South America, people - especially women and children - are attracted by the prospect of a well-paid job as a domestic servant, waitress or factory worker. Traffickers recruit victims through fake advertisements, mail-order bride catalogues and casual acquaintances.
Upon arrival at their destination, victims are placed in conditions controlled by traffickers while they are exploited to earn illicit revenues. Many are physically confined, their travel or identity documents are taken away and they or their families are threatened if they do not cooperate. Women and girls forced to work as prostitutes are blackmailed by the threat that traffickers will tell their families. Trafficked children are dependent on their traffickers for food, shelter and other basic necessities. Traffickers also play on victims\' fears that authorities in a foreign country will prosecute or deport them if they ask for help.
Trafficking in human beings is a global issue, but a lack of systematic research means that reliable data that would allow comparative analyses and the design of countermeasures a rarity.
Their isn\'t a country on earth safe from Human Trafficking, nor is their a community that isn\'t directly affected. The illicit revenues brought in daily exceeds not only organized crime, internet fraud, identity theft, but the International Drug Trade as well.
There is a need to strengthen the criminal justice response to trafficking through legislative reform, awareness-raising and training, as well as through national and international cooperation. The support and protection of victims who give evidence is key to prosecuting the ringleaders behind the phenomenon.
It is to this end that www.TheWBMW.com has decided to make this commitment in support of established global organizations to combat and eventually defeat this growing epidemic.
