Anti-Trafficking in Person Video by GMA 7 with World Vision and USAID
Life for people like Joy (featured in this video) who lived in Ormoc City wasn’t easy. The average household income in the region is $92 per month and nearly half the population lives in poverty. Then came Super Typhoon Yolanda which demolished most infrastructure that lay in its path. Joy desperately sought work to rebuild their lives and found a job as a domestic helper but then things went bad. Through the activities of USAID and World Vision, Joy's husband realized she was caught in a trafficking ploy. He reported the case, which led to Joy’s rescue.
[ USAID and World Vision reached people through public assemblies and campaign materials. They educated the community about how to recognize and report suspicious behavior and trained local leaders to respond to cases. ]
