The UAE’s support network for victims of human trafficking is debating the idea of opening a shelter for men, but no decision has not been taken yet, according to a local newspaper.

Ewa’a Shelters for Women and Children, which operates in Abu Dhabi, Sharjah and Ras Al Khaimah for victims of human trafficking, wants to be ready to serve any adult men who need help, Maitha Al Mazroui, development and follow-up manager for Ewa’a, was quoted as saying by Abu Dhabi’s The National daily.

“We heard many people ask, �Why don’t you have a place for men?’ If there is a need, we’ll open.” The proposal is still in a preliminary stage and is being discussed by the Ewa’a board of directors, Al Mazroui said.
