THE Consell de Mallorca and Balearic Government are protecting victims of trafficking in Mallorca with a grant of €130000.
On Monday August 30, a formal agreement was signed by representatives of both Parliaments in the presence of the director of the Balearic Women’s Institute, Maria Duran.
Through this agreement, the regional administration and the Council undertake to guarantee in Mallorca social and comprehensive assistance for victims of sexual exploitation and trafficking of women; to ensure the operation of emergency centres, shelters, sheltered flats and safe accommodation for victims of sexual exploitation and their children.
In addition, the parties confirmed that they will pay special attention to ensure that officers follow-up the situation of children and mothers who were victims of gender-based violence and to guarantee access to social care for women victims and their children who also face any kind of discrimination.
All involved are committed to fight the trafficking, prostitution and sexual exploitation, with the closure of brothels to prevent contagion in the worst moments of the pandemic and have access to European funds to undertake this work as well as endeavouring to find accommodation for victims.
