Fighting Human Trafficking with 24-Hour Call Center

Charity organizations in South Africa are teaming up to counteract human trafficking into the country by establishing a call center where victims and witnesses can file reports.

Some observers wonder how the Salvation Army and its partner Be Heard, which have stepped up their anti-human trafficking campaign and recently launched a 24-hour toll free hotline, will manage in such a complicated environment.

But Marieke Venter, of the Salvation Army's central division, is adamant her organisation will do whatever it can to stop what she called 'new slavery', and save lives despite various challenges.
