Trafficked people experience frequent and severe violence in human trafficking, making them highly vulnerable to traumatic brain injuries. Traffickers and sex purchasers may inflict repeated strangulation, as well as punches and kicks to a survivor’s head and face, on practically a daily basis. When multiple traumatic brain injuries accumulate over time and receive no medical attention, they can significantly impair a human trafficking survivor’s ability to function in everyday life. Traumatic brain injuries become a barrier to survivors getting the help they need to get a fresh start.
At The Dragonfly Home, we walk with survivors of human trafficking to help them overcome barriers to starting a new life, like accessing medical services, getting legal assistance, finding safe shelter, and so much more.
