Thank you to each and everyone of the 125+ people who clicked ‘join’ to show that you care and want an end to the slavery. A massive thank you to those who took the initiative and time out of your day to take a picture and post it on our feeds to elevate the support. We are loving the pictures and comments!

Anti- Slavery day- 18 October

twitter post

Each year on 18 October, it is Anti-Slavery Day. A day that provides us the opportunity to draw attention and awareness to the subject of human trafficking and to pressure governments, local authorities, public institutions and private and public companies to address the scale and scope of the subject.

It is a day that will inspire people to eliminate the problem and eradicate the wrong.

Today we fight against modern slavery, ensure perpetrators are punished for their appalling crimes against humanity and enhance support and protection of victims. Remember: Don’t let this taboo issue stay hidden- let it come alive. It is suppose to be shocking and controversial but the more people that know, the more we can start the movement towards prosecution of the traffickers and the protection of those trafficked.

Be aware. Serve the Right. Join the movement today.
