Queen Letizia of Spain ended the busy week with two audiences at the Royal Palace of Zarzuela. Letizia met with representatives of two different groups at the Palace.
In the morning, Letizia welcomed the representatives from the Association for the study of Spinal Cord Injury “AESLEME”; Association “Stop Accidents”, Association of help and guidance to those affected by traffic accidents; Spanish Association for the Prevention of Traffic Accidents “P (A) T”; “DIA” Association of Accident Victims; Association of people with Spinal Cord Injury and other Physical Disabilities “ASPAYM”; and Spanish Federation of Brain Injury “FEDACE” on the occasion of the “World Day in Memory of Traffic Accident Victims”.
The different associations were led by the Minister of the Interior, Fernando Grande-Marlaska Gómez, and the Director-General of Traffic, Pere Navarro Olivella. World Trafficking Victims Day has been commemorated since its inception in 1993. Brigitte Chaundry, the founder of Road Peace, inspired the various organizations for victims of traffic accidents to come together under the auspices of the European Federation of Victims of the Highway (FEVR).
The third Sunday in November was recognized as World Trafficking Victims Day in the United Nations General Assembly on October 26, 2005, and later supported by the WHO. On that day, tribute is paid to the people who died and were seriously injured in a traffic accident and to their families. It is also a day to thank and recognize the dedication of those who contribute to improving the situation of the victims and to give visibility to the magnitude of the devastation in trafficking and the impact on families and society. It is an important day, not only for the families and victims but also for many others who work in the prevention of traffic accidents or those who deal with its consequences.
Then the Queen received the audience from representatives of the Association for the Prevention, Reintegration, and Care of Prostituted Women. The association works, from the beginning, to prevent and eradicate sexual exploitation and human trafficking.
The representation of APRAMP was headed by its president, Rocío Nieto Rubio, and its director, Rocío Mora Nieto, who referred to the report prepared by this association on the sexual exploitation of women after the end of the State of Alarm for COVID-19.
APRAMP highlights that “during this year and a half and during the lockdown, the exploitation wasn’t stopped and minds behind forcing women in the human trafficking were relentlessly harming the victims. The APRAMP was working hard to protect the victims and rehabilitate them during the pandemic.
The Association defends and promotes the rights of people who suffer sexual exploitation and trafficking so that they can regain freedom, dignity and rehabilitate their life away from the horrors of their past. It also develops programs aimed at guaranteeing access to their rights and meeting the needs of victims when they are not covered by public services, acting as a bridge between them and the law and government.
These programs are aimed at the proactive detection and identification of victims of trafficking and sexual exploitation, their protection, and immediate attention in the social, legal, health, psychological, training, and labor fields. They support and accompany the decision-making of the person, directed towards the voluntary return to their country of origin or their insertion in Spain.
