Restoring Life & Dignity


A Human Trafficking Hot Spot

Though Thailand has made remarkable progress in social and economic development over the years, it remains a trafficking hot spot.

Thailand is a source, transit and destination country for sex and labor trafficking, and increasing online sexual exploitation.

Ethinic minorities, those who are stateless, and people from Thailand’s remote highlands are at heightened risk.

In Thailand, Hagar works through a local partner organization to support survivors, prevent exploitation, and prosecute perpetrators.

Fai’s harrowing story of exploitation ultimately ended in freedom through justice with her brave testimony and LIFT International’s dedicated support.
