Dear Members and Supporters,
ACRATH’s two-month fundraising campaign leads into 30th July – World Day Against Trafficking In Persons. We are well down on our target and urge you to support ACRATH if possible. If you have already donated, thank you.
This year we have campaigned for funds to continue our Companionship Program supporting women who have been trafficked and their children, and to expand our training, particularly of frontline health workers, to identify trafficked people and know referral pathways.
We also need support to continue our advocacy. Next month we will advocate with politicians on forced marriage and the rights of vulnerable overseas workers, especially during a pandemic.
We know ACRATH’s voice is heard in Canberra. Support ACRATH and make the voices louder so that the stories of trafficked women, men and children can be heard.
ACRATH receives no Government funding. Please donate today and help trafficked women, men and children. Donation details below.

Seek an Economy of Care
30th July is World Day Against Trafficking In Persons. ACRATH is joining Talitha Kum and calling on people of good will to come together and tackle the systemic causes of human trafficking.
We call on governments to commit to long-term support for survivors, including quality education, access to justice and compensation, and medical and psychosocial assistance.
