Metro Trafficked from Nigeria to Greece for Prostitution -Caritas



One day, a woman came up to me as I was selling oranges in my hometown of Benin, Nigeria, and asked me what I was doing.

I told her I was earning money so I could pay the fees for my art course. I was getting around 320 dinar a day (€1.50). She said that if I went to Europe I could earn €800 a month as a hairdresser.
