Mindanao gives P10000 to 10 human trafficking victims

Ten human trafficking victims received a P10,000 fund assistance each from the social welfare department of the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM), based on an report by Philstar.
“These victims of trafficking in person can also avail of vocational schooling through TESDA (Technical Education and Skills Development Authority) to enable them to start life anew,” said human rights lawyer Laisa Alamia, incumbent regional executive secretary of ARMM.
Alamia personally handed over the cash assistance to each of the 10 victims, among them Farhana Gendeng, 17, a resident of Datu Piang town in the second district of Maguindanao.
The victims were rescued in one operation after another in recent months from recruiters who were to force them into illegal employment after having been duped with promises of convenient and good paying jobs somewhere in Metro Manila and abroad.
