December 30, 2013 Off By Web Desk

KARACHI: Chairman of Ansar Burney Trust International and United Nations former Expert Adviser on Human Rights, Ansar Burney, said that his organization was preparing a report on the issue of ‘missing underage children’ from middle eastern countries.

He requested that families, parents and relatives of children under the age of 18 years, which have been reported missing since the ban in 2005 to contact Ansar Burney Trust.

In the last 32 years Ansar Burney Trust International has rescued thousands of such trafficked children including young girls from private prisons and slavery camps and later rehabilitated them in their respective countries like Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Sudan, Ethiopia, Somalia, Mauritania, Kenya, Nigeria and other parts of the developing world.

Later due to his historical efforts and success, the State Department of the United States of America declared Ansar Burney as ‘International Anti Human Trafficking HERO’.

Now Ansar Burney will be starting his visits again in these developing countries to collect accurate information on the thousands that have been reported missing since the ban. It will also tackle the issue of children still being used as Camel Jockeys, which in today’s terms has been quoted as ‘Modern Day Slavery’. This report is to be released in August 2014.

Ansar Burney has requested parents, families and relatives from developing countries of these children missing from Middle Eastern countries after ban in 2005 to contact the Ansar Burney Trust International, 6 – Hassan Manzil, Arambagh Road, Karachi, Pakistan.
