A new pilot campaign just launched and it aims at helping tackle modern slavery within the Nigerian community in the UK. It will focus on helping those trapped in domestic slavery, where victims are typically kept against their will, mistreated and forced to work long hours with no pay.

A short film, developed in partnership with the Salvation Army and child protection charity AFRUCA, has been launched to highlight how incidents of domestic slavery are happening under the radar in Nigerian communities across the UK, and to empower communities to report concerns confidentially and anonymously to the Modern Slavery helpline.

Have you Heard?’ is a short film produced by award-winning Nigerian filmmaker Ogo Okpue and it demonstrates the devastating impact of being held as a domestic slave (also known as illegal house help), underlines the potential consequences for perpetrators and the specialist support available to victims.

    Very good initiative. Short and direct with phone numbers/helpline. It is because of this type of bad behaviour that au pair agencies are reluctant to send people to Nigerian homes.

      They wouldn’t pay an Italian girl and asked her to leave the house at 5am in the morning when she informed the lady she wanted to leave. When I went to pick said girl up, I asked what the fracas was about. Shebi she said she’s an adult, let’s see how she survives. So called scarf wearing righteous Christian. So shameful- no morals, so disappointed.

    Yet na we call God pass. Hypocrites , you just need to watch Big brother to know how mess up we are as a people in this Nation. Back stabbing, loose behavior, gossip, ratchets, no love, no empathy, lies, two faced, fake friendships and fake cliques, a house divided because someone doesn’t fit th society’s norm and a lot off miss conceived opinions and a lot off bullying all these because of 25m. I wonder what God we claim to worship in this Country. It’s sad just sad
