WHAT?

Human Trafficking is the recruitment or movement of persons, through threat or force, deception or coercion for the purpose of exploitation.


HOW?

People are tricked into situations where they are bought, sold, abused, and exploited in many different ways: sexual exploitation, forced labour, street crime, domestic servitude or even the sale of organs and human sacrifice. Trafficking affects every continent and every country. Traffickers and their victims often come from the same place, speak the same language or have the same ethnic background as their victims. Such commonalities help traffickers generate trust to carry out the crime.


WHY?

People are trafficked primarily for financial gain. Human trafficking is a multi-billion dollar industry -  it is a high-profit, low-risk crime.

Spot the signs

Understanding the signs to look out for could help the most vulnerable people within your community. A person could be a victim of trafficking if he/she:

  • is fearful, anxious, depressed, submissive, tense, nervous or paranoid
  • avoids eye contact
  • appears malnourished
  • shows signs of physical or sexual abuse, physical restraint, confinement or torture
  • has few or no personal possessions
  • has numerous inconsistencies in his or her stories
  • is not allowed to speak for themselves

If you recognise some of these signs, it is essential that you share what you’ve seen with the relevant authorities.

Dear Partners & Supporters,

As we are heading towards the end of 2020, it’s good to look ahead and think about what the new year may unveil.

But first, let’s take a quick look back. 2020 was quite a year for all of us. We are grateful that we were quickly able to respond to the COVID-19 situation and provide relief aid to over 3000 affected families across Chittoor, Chennai, Mumbai/Thane and Bangalore. We also went ahead with the Mukthi Bike Challenge and even launched the Madras Fuse online portal. The year also brought with it other big challenges but with the boards’ complete support Oasis India is geared for compliance as we enter the new fiscal year.

I would like to start with a huge thank you to all members of the committee of management, sub-committee, and society members – Thank you for all your wonderful contributions towards the growth and success of our mission. We strive to put our communities at the heart of everything we do and we sincerely would like to thank all our sensitive donors, front line staff, the many change agents and volunteers for their trust, support and excellent cooperation with us.

All our staff love what they are doing and our beneficiaries can feel that in every interaction. I wish that we continue to be challenged by our mission – to work in an inclusive, integrated, empowering and comprehensive way so that all people experience wholeness and fullness of life, and guided by our Vision – for community, a place where everyone is included making a contribution and reaching their fullest potential.

I wish you and your families a joyous, peaceful and restful festive season and all the best for the New Year 2021.
