The launching of billboards to promote the Vietnam Anti-Trafficking in Persons Hotline ‘111’ took place on May 22 in Cua Lo town, Nghe An province with the participation of British Embassy’s Deputy Head of Mission Stephen Lysaght, Miss Vietnam Universe 2017 H'Hen Nie together with representatives from Nghe An provincial Department of Labour, Invalids & Social Affairs, Department of Foreign Affairs and Department of Children under Vietnam’s Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs.
The event is part of a campaign led by British Embassy in Hanoi in conjunction with associated partners to raise public awareness on countering human trafficking.
With the message “Don’t gamble with your future – illegal migration can lead to human trafficking”, the campaign sees the support of Miss Universe Vietnam 2017 H’Hen Nie in encouraging people to carefully examine their options when considering a migration path.
Speaking at the ceremony, British Embassy's Deputy Head of Mission Stephen Lysaght shared: "Our efforts are about making people aware of the risks that they will face if they listen to the people traffickers, to share information about serious organised crime groups and to build capacity amongst Vietnamese law enforcement and avoid more Vietnamese people becoming victims of the crime groups."

Supporting the campaign, H’hen Nie highlighted: ‘Coming from an ethnic group in Vietnam, where many people especially girls are vulnerable to human trafficking, I hold this issue very close to heart. I hope that people will be aware that each of us should be equipped with the knowledge to prevent ourselves and our loved ones from falling into the human traffickers’ traps’.
Other billboards aiming to improve public awareness of illegal migration and human trafficking are being set up in Dien Chau, Yen Thanh, Nghi Loc, Hung Nguyen, Tuong Duong and Con Cuong districts of Nghe An province - one of the human trafficking hotspots.
Meanwhile, billboards raising awareness on illegal migration and human trafficking are being set up at five international airports in Vietnam, namely Noi Bai, Tan Son Nhat, Da Nang, Vinh and Dong Hoi./.
