Protection for victims of trafficking

Since the foundation of FIM in 1980 our focus has been on the work against human trafficking. From 1999 onwards, FIM has been the central coordination centre of Hessian work against human trafficking.

Counselling at FIM is primarily offered to women who have been victims of sexual violence, exploitation and compulsion in prostitution. Most of the victims of human trafficking are foreigners, currently coming mainly from Bulgaria and Rumania.

FIM also assists some victims of human trafficking in work exploitation (besides prostitution). FIM counsels and supports victims of human trafficking through

  • Psychosocial counselling and protection of victims
  • Provision of safe accommodation
  • Securing medical and psychological care
  • Information on possible law assistance and accessory prosecution representation
  • Preparation for, accompaniment to and follow up of trials
  • Assistance regarding language, educational and professional qualification
  • Assistance in securing livelihood and job hunting
  • Integration in German society and support in case of a return and reintegration into the country of origin, respectively

Human trafficking is a major human rights violation and infringes the right of each individual on personal liberty as well as physical and mental integrity.
