Be a stay-at-home hero and take on the 2.6 Challenge for STOP THE TRAFFIK

The London Marathon, which was due to take place on Sunday 26 April, is the world’s biggest single-day fundraising event. Its cancellation due to Covid-19 comes as a significant blow to many charitable organisations globally. The 2.6 Challenge is a way of showing your continued support and becoming a stay-at-home hero.

It’s simple! In four easy steps, you can help raise vital funds to end human trafficking

Why STOP THE TRAFFIK?

COVID-19 is affecting everyone, but the most vulnerable in society will be those who suffer the most. Where there is uncertainty, loss of reliable income or loss of life, exploitation will follow – and traffickers know this.  STOP THE TRAFFIK is working hard to scale up as an organisation in order to combat this increase in exploitation.

Coronavirus won’t stop modern slavery, but with your help, we can. Your support is more important than ever.

Our approach

At STOP THE TRAFFIK, we are working globally to prevent human trafficking. We develop and implement intelligence-led campaigns that identify human trafficking trends and hotspots. In partnership with Facebook, local law enforcement, government, financial institutions and rescue organisations we run geo-targeted campaigns. So far, we’ve reached almost 7 million people. Help us reach the next 7 million and beyond.
