A UN trust fund, established in 2016, aided 43,000 people affected by sexual exploitation and abuse. The annual report of the Trust Fund in Support of Victims of Sexual Exploitation and Abuse was released by the UN Department of Management Strategy, Policy, and Compliance. The report covered the activities of 2022 and highlighted the fund’s impact.
Stephane Dujarric, chief spokesman for Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, made the announcement. Six projects were implemented in countries like the Central African Republic, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Haiti, Liberia, and South Sudan. These projects had a positive effect on the lives of victims of sexual misconduct. The fund’s efforts aimed to support and assist those affected by such abuse.
It is a part of the UN’s commitment to address and combat sexual exploitation and abuse. The fund plays a crucial role in providing aid and support to victims in vulnerable regions. The UN continues its efforts to combat and prevent sexual exploitation and abuse worldwide.
