Information board for migrants installed in Manas Airport

USAID launched information terminals at Manas International Airport of Kyrgyzstan to prevent human trafficking and to protect the rights of migrants leaving Kyrgyzstan. The press service of the US Embassy in the Kyrgyz Republic reported.

It is reported that ten additional information terminals will be installed across the country. There will provide data for travelers about their rights and the steps that they can take to avoid human trafficking.

As estimates say, 700,000 migrants from Kyrgyzstan, who are living and working abroad, often face discrimination and are at a high risk of being trafficked.

In addition to information campaigns and a hotline (189 phone number), USAID also provides direct support to victims of human trafficking in Kyrgyzstan. Already more than a hundred migrants, who were in dire need of food and medical care or lost documents abroad, received the necessary help. They are also provided an opportunity to undergo vocational training and get new skills in order to find work in their homeland and not to leave Kyrgyzstan.
