WEA calls for long-term protection against human trafficking in Ukraine and neighboring countries

The World Evangelical Alliance, together with its partners, the World Freedom Network (WFN) and European Freedom Network (EFN), called on governments closest to the Ukraine crisis and further abroad to provide avenues to regularize migration status for those rebuilding their lives in neighboring countries, and urged the international community to fulfill and strengthen their commitment to financial support to protect vulnerable populations facing displacement.

The oral statement was made at the Human Rights Council 53rd session, during the interactive dialogue with Ms. Siobhán Mullally, the Special Rapporteur on trafficking in persons, especially women and children, on 28 June 2023.
