Stephanie Linus Visits Rescue ship ‘Aquarius’, Advocates Against Human Trafficking
Nollywood actress Stephanie Linus is currently in Italy to advocate against human trafficking as it has become more rampant in recent times.
In the wake of the increased rate of human trafficking being experienced by Nigerians trying to migrate to Europe via Libya, Actress and Producer Stephanie Linus has recently arrived in Italy to give support to rescued people and raise her voice against such human rights violations.
This timely intervention is in partnership with the world-renowned international medical humanitarian organisation “Doctors Without Borders” (MSF).
Mrs Linus will visit the rescue ship “Aquarius” to witness their activities and operations. Later she will have meetings with some of these vulnerable women; participate in rehabilitation exercises for the rescued women, media parleys and stakeholder meetings with the aim of alleviating their sufferings and preventing more girls and women from falling prey.
In partnership with international medical humanitarian organization – Doctors Without Borders (MSF) and European Organization for the Rescue of Lives in the Mediterranean – SOS Mediterranean, the actress visited the rescue ship Aquarius today.
Her visit was a very productive one as her and her team were given a tour of the ship, and afterwards, discussions on the overall need to educate people on the dangers of being trafficked and integrating the rescued victims back into the society followed.
She also had a press conference where she spoke about measures that can be used to curb human trafficking, stating that working together, can get the high percentage of human trafficking down drastically and hopefully soon, eliminate this world issue.
