Approximately 1.2 million girls and boys are trafficked each year. That's only in the United States.
On a Global Scale, the greatest form of human trafficking is for sexual exploitation, with women and children being the most vulnerable. In second and third world countries, migrants hand over their lives to people promising a safe passage to new destinations promising fresh opportunity, only to find themselves forced into sex work or slavery. According to the United Nations 2016 Global Report on Trafficked Persons, some of these sexually exploited individuals are also at risk for organ harvesting.
