As the implementing partner with IOM (International Office for Migration) PRADET provides a shelter staffed by 5 (five) shelter workers, and one driver to provide temporary safe accommodation, counseling and health care for people who have been trafficked to Timor Leste. Other implementing partners are Department of Immigration, PNTL (National Police), Alola Foundation and UNPOL.
The information gathering process is difficult, and general information is the only type victims are prepared to share because they usually experience increased stress, coupled with behaviours like denial, shame and aggression. There is pressure creating an emotional and physical condition for the clients. PRADET has a strategy to reduce their stress through planned and structured activities and provide information about the process of making complaints to the police and proceeding the cases to Court. Because the legal process is so slow anxiety increases and clients no longer want to stay in the shelter or with the notification process. PRADET hopes that in the future, procedures will be progressed and representation into a productive outcome both legally and in the Courts.
