The Salvation Army has historically been on the frontlines fighting human trafficking since the time of William and Catherine Booth in London, England—advocating to raise the legal age of consent. We have come a long way, but the battle is far from over.
The Salvation Army is opposed to the corrupt abuse of power against other human beings that is inherent in trafficking for personal economic gain. We, therefore, have the responsibility, both individually and collectively, to work for the liberation of those who have been enslaved in this manner, and to establish the legal and social mechanisms by which human trafficking can be stopped.
The Salvation Army in Romania operates in 5 cities nationally, where we are actively combatting human trafficking. With awareness in children’s programs and people living in vulnerable situations, and collaboration with local agencies, authorities and international networks, we provide assistance in a variety of ways. We are committed to fight for freedom!
