This week in India Loud & Clear we will talk about the ugly face of human trafficking.
Human Trafficking, a Trade of Human Flesh I India Loud & Clear I EP 8
After drugs and arms, human trafficking is the most global crime. UNICEF estimates that there are about 21 million trafficked people around the world. That’s the buying and selling of 21 million people, ending up as modern-day slaves. Mostly women and girls.
