Laos Today: Thailand Provides Assistance to Laos Women's Union


Thai authorities provide a 2-million Baht aid to the Lao Women's Union to train young Lao girls and women in vocational fields. The assistance is primarily aimed at rehabilitating Lao girls and women who had fallen victims of transnational human trafficking and were rescued and returned to Laos by Thai authorities.

Lao officials say an increasing number of girls and women from southern Laos flee poverty at home to look for work in neighboring Thailand and fall victims of human traffickers, who sell them to brothels and sweatshops in Thailand.
