?The victims arrive at the shelter in a bad psychological state due to the trauma and injustice that they have experienced. The shelter then works on plans for victims to help them regain their confidence,? said Sara, who presented to journalists a number of rehabilitation programmes and procedures implemented by Ewa?a.
She pointed out that the victims are medically examined once they are admitted in the shelter, and added that shelters were opened in Sharjah and Ras Al Khaimah to facilitate required procedures and alleviate the victim?s burden of travelling, not due to the high volume of human trafficking victims. Sara said that the objective of the shelter is to protect human dignity and society, as well as raise awareness on the dangers of human trafficking crimes and the importance of combating it.
