Purple Teardrop Campaign supports Anya17

I am delighted to announce that the Purple Teardrop Campaign has joined Anya17 as an official supporter. As you can imagine we’re all very excited about their participation and wish them the warmest of welcomes. The Purple Teardrop Campaign has four main aims:

1. To raise awareness among the general public of the plight of women and children who are trafficked.

2. To try to suppress the demand for trafficked women by making men who use prostitutes aware that they could be contributing to this trade.

3. To promote the Crimestoppers number, 0800 555 111, so that members of the public can give confidential information on locations where they think trafficked women are being exploited.

4. To support the safe houses which provide holistic care for victims who have been freed from trafficking.
