PIA 6 supports 'Blue Heart' campaign

ILOILO CITY (PIA) --  The Philippine Information Agency (PIA) 6 expresses its support for the "Blue Heart" campaign to end trafficking in persons by participating in the inter-agency and local government units' simultaneous declaration of commitment during the flag ceremony on Monday, July 3, 2023.

The activity serves as the launching of the month-long celebration of the World Day Against Trafficking led by the Regional Council Against Trafficking (RCAT) 6. 

PIA 6 Regional Head Cheryl Amor said that as a member of the Regional Council Against Trafficking (RCAT), PIA supports this campaign in the hope to end human trafficking especially involving women and children.

"Let us help stop the use, abuse and exploitation of women and children for profit through human trafficking.  Let us be advocates of respect for human rights and preservation of dignity encompassing age, sex, gender and ability," Amor added.

The month of July is declared the National Anti-Trafficking in Persons Awareness Month under

Proclamation No. 1180 s. 2021, and July 30 is World Day Against Trafficking.

The theme for this year, "Reach Every Victim of Trafficking, Leave No One Behind," aims to raise awareness of disturbing developments and trends and to call on the government, law enforcement, public services, and civil society to evaluate and improve their efforts to strengthen prevention, find and help victims, and put an end to impunity.

The blue heart campaign is a global awareness-raising initiative to fight human trafficking in persons and its impact on society.

The Blue Heart is increasingly recognized as the international symbol against human trafficking as it then represented the sorrow of those who are trafficked and  now expresses the solidarity with the victim-survivors. (AAL/ED/PIA 6)
