This is a newly released Public Service Announcement by Walk With Me Victim Services Canada created to raise awareness to the growing issue of domestic human trafficking.
When Timea Nagy, survivor of human trafficking, realized that there were no services available for police or human trafficked victims, she founded Walk With Me in 2009.
This survivor lead organization, Walk With Me Canada Victim Services provides the only 24/7 mobile victim care, and emergency safe housing for victims of human trafficking in Ontario.
Walk With Me has served over 200 victims and receives a minimum of 400 calls per year to provide assistance to victims, their families and police. 89% of our victims are Canadian who have been exploited in our local communities.
Our emergency safe housing and front line operation costs $180,00.000/ year. The funding/donations that we have received to date are not enough to keep our safe house open as of May 31, 2013. Therefore, the $60,000 we are looking to raise are to cover our expenses for our busiest season coming up from June through September 2013. PLEASE watch this video, share it with others and make a donation. Together WE can make a difference.
