Long Abstract: Victoria Climbie, a little Ivorian girl killed in Britain in February 2000, represents the broader tragedy of societal break-down in Africa and the hideous nature of child trafficking that poverty allows to seep through to Europe. Many children like Victoria are easily smuggled into Britain and other European countries since their carers are not required to register as foster parents. This makes it impossible to keep track of them. The children are used with similar ease to cash in on the generous welfare benefits that single parents receive to help raise children.
