It is no doubt a common knowledge the continuous rise in the number of Nigerians who experience or rather fall victims to human trafficking and other forms of human rights violation in Europe. Many Nigerians however, have continued to show support in the numerous ways possible.
Amongst which is Nollywood star Stephanie Linus. The veteran actress is currently in Italy and is believed to be lending her own form of support towards the fight against human rights violation.
According to reports, she plans on visiting the rescue ship “Aquarius” to witness activities and operations. She also intends on holding meetings with some of these vulnerable women, participate in rehabilitation exercises for the rescued women with the sole aim of alleviating their sufferings and preventing more girls and women from falling victims. She revealed this in a recent post on her Instagram page.
She wrote: “In partnership with the world-renowned international medical humanitarian organisation “Doctors Without Borders” (Médecins sans frontières) @MSF_Sea #MSF, I recently arrived in Italy to give support to rescued people and raise my voice against human rights violations like trafficking and sexual exploitation. Over the next few days, I’ll be participating in rehabilitation exercises for the rescued women, visit the rescue ship “Aquarius”, media parleys and stakeholder meetings aimed at alleviating their sufferings and preventing more girls and women from falling prey. I will also be meeting with some of these vulnerable women and listening to their stories. Advocacy and intervention measures for this dire situation can never be too much, and I hope to do everything I can to shed light on human trafficking of these innocent victims. I urge you to join me as well.#notohumantraffickin
