Esclave en Tunisie: Une jeune ivoirienne raconte ses six mois de calvaire

Human trafficking and domestic violence are two issues of deep concern in the Republic of Moldova. These issues imply violations of basic human rights and jeopardize human security. Moldova is currently one of the main countries of origin for human trafficking. 

Domestic violence, discrimination against women, lack of parental care, poverty, inadequate public services, and a high level of unemployment are just some of the factors that contribute to human trafficking in Moldova. 

One in four women in Moldova is a victim of domestic violence. Women say that alcohol abuse, poverty and tradition are the main causes of domestic violence. One in every three victims blames herself for “provoking the violence.” Studies show that only a tiny number of cases of human trafficking and domestic violence are officially reported and assisted.

UNDP has partnered with the Government and other international organizations to protect and empower victims of human trafficking and domestic violence.

En Tunisie, de jeunes femmes originaires d’Afrique subsaharienne, pensant trouver un emploi et des conditions de travail idéales, se retrouvent victimes de traite humaine et réduites à l’esclavage. Privées de liberté, elles travaillent dans des conditions difficiles et sont souvent maltraitées. Sophie (le prénom a été modifié), jeune ivoirienne, ancienne victime de traite, a accepté de témoigner.
