FRANKLIN, Tenn., Dec. 4, 2012 /Christian Newswire/ -- Free for Life International is pleased to offer their multilingual phrasebook, an anti-trafficking tool consisting of questions to ask a suspected victim in 47 different languages. This is now available to service providers throughout the world who may want to use it to identify a trafficking victim in the high-risk immigrant and refugee community. This material is a part of a larger Free for Life project called the Emergency Multilingual Phrasebook for Healthcare Providers, a project focused on the medical community.
This Multilingual phrasebook offers 12 questions that a social service provider, law enforcement officer, non-profit organization, or medical provider might use to determine if an individual is a victim of human trafficking. This tool is primarily focused on identifying victims within a population group where English is not the primary language spoken. With questions available in 47 languages, an interested individual can print or download this set of questions in their native language along with a set of questions in the language of the suspected potential victim. This will facilitate the communication between these 2 individuals who may otherwise be unable to effectively communicate. With languages from Albanian to Welsh, Hungarian to Kurdish, including many African and Asian languages, Free for Life believes that this tool can actually bring about the rescue of individuals who are trapped in sex slavery. The material can be printed directly from the webpage in an attractive and easy to read format, and is offered free of charge.
Colette Bercu, CEO & Founder of Free for Life and co-author of this material states; "We would encourage anyone who has a need or an interest in this material to go ahead and use it freely, and to share it with your colleagues or co-workers."
