Virtual Fundraising concert
World Day Against Trafficking in Persons


Date: 30 July
Time: 9 AM PST . 12 PM EST . 6 PM CEST . 9:30 PM IST



Millions of people around the world are victims of human trafficking. They fall into the hands of criminals who are exploiting their vulnerabilities for financial or other gains.

• 7 out of 10 detected victims of human trafficking are women and girls.
• 1/3 of detected victims of human trafficking are children trafficked for sexual exploitation, forced labour and other forms of exploitation.

This phenomenon is far more common than you think. In fact, without even being aware of it, we all might have come across cases of human trafficking.

To support the victims, join the “live virtual concert” on the World Day Against Trafficking in Persons on 30 July. The concert’s host, UNODC Goodwill Ambassador and actress Mira Sorvino, will guide you through the performances of the
“Artists UNited against Trafficking in Persons”

UNODC is partnering with Rukus Avenue Music Group

UNODC is delighted to partner with the Rukus Avenue Music Group for this year’s fundraising concert.

In 2017, Rukus Avenue Group partnered with the Trust Fund to release “Music to Inspire”: a triple disc compilation featuring over 75 renowned artists and dignitaries from around the world as a collective fight by the music industry to end human trafficking under the “Artists United Against Human Trafficking” banner. Revenues from the charitable album were donated to the Trust Fund in support of victims.

We particularly thank producer Sammy Chand and project manager Raoul Juneja for joining and supporting the fight to #EndHumanTrafficking.
