23 March Observance

Most of us are not aware of The International Day of Remembrance of the

Victims of Slavery and the Transatlantic Slave Trade. BBC says slavery  

includes sex trafficking and bonded labour, where a person’s work is ‘security’

for a debt that can’t be repaid. We already know about child soldiers and

women sexual slavery but Dr. Ewelina U. Ochab advises victims of modern-day

slavery are around us all and that we should all ‘be vigilant to see and brave to speak up’.
