Silk Shibani Scarf featuring the Blue Heart, an international symbol against human trafficking

High end's women's wear, Beulah London, has been giving a boost to the fight against human trafficking together with the UN's Office on Drugs and Crime, UNODC.

Beulah London has set up an ethical clothing company by employing rescued sex trafficking victims in India.

Derrick Mbatha reports.

The UNODC Blue Heart Campaign against Human Trafficking has entered into a joint venture with luxury fashion label, Beulah London, to work with women who have escaped the sex trade in India.

Beulah London supports two projects in India – Freeset and Openhand, where the women receive a salary, health insurance and child care in exchange for their work. They also receive textile training to develop their skills.

For every dress, scarf or bag sold, a proportion of the profits goes to the Blue Heart Campaign, which also supports the United Nations Voluntary Trust Fund for Victims of Human Trafficking.
