IOM has assisted in resolving 30 cases of human trafficking over the last three years. These are mainly women trafficked to Timor for sexual exploitation and men trafficked aboard fishing vessels who escape to shore in Timor. For victim assistance, IOM provides medical and shelter care, liaises with governments and IOM offices in the beneficiaries’ country of origin to facilitate the return process, and, when necessary, helps beneficiaries to settle in Timor-Leste.
