In 2017, over 770 modern slavery victims were referred to UK authorities and identified as Albanian nationals. As a result, the UK government has pledged two million pounds to projects in Albanian human trafficking hotspot’s capital Tirana and the three northern districts of Diber, Shkoder and Kukes. Projects focus on prevention education as well as supporting victims to rebuild their lives. Pray that the Albanian government will show excellent commitment to decreasing human trafficking in the nation (The Bible, Isaiah 16:5).
