    Press release

    Today we celebrate the 10th anniversary of the UN Voluntary Trust Fund for victims of human trafficking, especially women and children. The Trust Fund supports more than 3,500 victims of human trafficking every year through its NGO partners. With a contribution of 2 million euros, Belgium is the largest donor to the Trust Fund. Together with other partners, Belgium organized a panel discussion in the margins of the annual UNTOC conference (the UN Convention against Transnational Organized Crime), highlighting the achievements and the "lessons learned" over the past years, but also the importance of direct assistance to victims of human trafficking, with a special focus on women and girls who have been sexually exploited.
