What is The Blue Heart Campaign?

Global awareness raising initiative to fight human trafficking and its impact on society. It is increasingly recognized as the international symbol against human trafficking, representing the sadness of those who are trafficked while reminding us of the cold-heartedness of those who buy and sell fellow human beings.   It seeks to encourage involvement from governments, civil society, the corporate sector and individuals alike, to inspire action and help prevent this heinous crime.


What is the purpose of this campaign?

To educate and raise the awareness about trafficking issues and the impact, to engage the public to become involved in the eradication of this crime, and also to show solidarity with the victims of human trafficking through the use of the Blue Heart.


Why “blue heart”?

The Blue Heart itself represents the sadness of all victims of human trafficking and reminds us of the cold-heartedness of those who buy and sell fellow human beings. The blue color has dual role since it also alludes United Nations commitment to combat human trafficking.


Donations to the Blue Heart Campaign go to the United Nations Voluntary Trust Fund for Victims of Trafficking in Persons, which provides vital assistance and protection to the victims of trafficking through specialized organizations across the globe.
