CARE OF VICTIMS OF TRAFFICKIN FOR SEXUAL EXPLOITATION
Nueva Vida is the only organization in the region of Cantabria that has a residential care resource for comprehensive care of women victims of trafficking for purpose of sexual exploitation.
Since 1998, the association has been assisting women who are victims of trafficking or who want to leave prostitution. In 2008, we signed a bilateral agreement with the government of Cantabria for temporary residential care for this purpose. .
Already in 2013, we started our work together with the Ministry of Equality, Health and Social Services, who supported our project, working in collaboration with various national and international associations.
During 2014 we assisted 8 women, one of them with a young child. The women were sent to us by the National Police, the Guardia Civil, Torrelavega City Council, The Cantabrian Network against trafficking, Igenus Foundation and the Fiet Gratia Association.
- To ensure freedom for the victims, providing a safe environment
