The aid has a total capital of USD 79,597, equivalent to more than VND 1.6 billion, and will be used for the project’s component on helping human trafficking victims and vulnerable migrants. The project will be implemented in Dong Hoi city and Bo Trach district from now until the end of March 2025.

It includes activities such as conducting surveys to understand the needs and aspirations of human trafficking victims and migrants in vulnerable situations and organizing workshops to guide business planning for target persons.

In addition, the project will also provide direct support based on need. The number of supported cases will be at least 30 – 35 cases. There will also be monitoring, evaluation, home visits, and technical guidance/business development. The project aims to document a model for successful community reintegration.

Human trafficking is currently an urgent problem in many countries, including Vietnam, according to VNA reported.

Although Quang Binh has not detected any human trafficking crimes, there are still many cases of people being lured to work in sensitive facilities abroad, illegally getting married to foreigners, or working in countries such as China, the Republic of Korea, and Australia. This situation tends to increase and become more complicated, drawing special attention from the province.
