Greece - Beautifully deceiving

Greece - Beautifully deceiving
Posted on

What do you think when you hear about Greece? A lovely Holiday? Summer getaway? 

.

Well, we think of the women and children who are continually abducted to Greece and forced into slavery.

.

Human trafficking is the illegal trade of human beings, mainly for the purposes of forced labor and sex trafficking. Every 30 seconds, someone becomes a victim of modern-day slavery.

.
Tragically, approximately 40,000 women and children aged 12–25 are trafficked each year in Greece. Many of these women and children being kidnapped throughout Syria, Greece, Pakistan, Albania, Bulgaria and Turkey. 
.
Greece is publicized as a beautiful travel destination - and it is beautiful - but most of us sadly aren’t aware of the jarring truth that trafficking continues to be the biggest illegal activity in the country. 
.
Thankfully there is something we can all do about it. We want to do our part, so we've proudly partnered up with @A21 to help demolish this horrific industry. Stand with us, and join this powerful movement. For every bag sold Travel In Chic donates 2% to this amazing campaign. Together we can empower all women, free these victims, and stir up global awareness and change. We can all make an impact, and we can and should educate ourselves. Visit A21.org for more information, and join us in the good fight. 
.
At Travel In Chic we are all about globe trotting and exploring all the beautiful cultures throughout the world, but we are also about traveling safely and wisely. Never live in fear, but always be aware. Human trafficking is everywhere, so be smart when jetsetting, backpacking and exploring on your exciting adventures!
