The International Organization for Migration or IOM held its second coordinating workshop on mapping available services for human trafficking victims in the fishing sector in Yangon on February 24.
The workshop was attended by 17 representatives (10 women) from 11 civil society and faith-based organizations in Rakhine state and Tanintharyi region. It is second to a workshop held in December in which representatives from 21 CSOs from the Mon state and Ayeyarwaddy and Yangon regions participated.
The workshop tackled human trafficking in the fishing sector; challenges in the rescue of, and protection services provision to, trafficked persons; and assistance through CSO networks. It also mapped return and reintegration services provided by CSOs, from documentation and temporary shelter to legal assistance and business development.
