As of June 2019, the Hotline for National Child Protection and Human Trafficking Prevention (Call Centre 111) had received and provided counselling for 764 human trafficking cases, along with connecting to help rescue 16 victims. The authorities have made records and conducted procedures to support returned victims of trafficking in line with regulations. They have verified, rescued and received 137 cases of trafficked victims. All these cases received initial support, safe accommodation arrangements, psychological counselling, health care, and legal assistance when required. They were reunited with their families and referred to victim support facilities in a safe manner.
The Project of Strengthening the Operation of Hotline for counseling and supporting trafficked survivors sponsored by Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) has contributed to raising people's awareness about human trafficking crimes, as well as operating the Hotline.
