Government urged to protect anti-child trafficking groups from attacks

Government has been urged to strengthen regulations to protect organizations which rescue and protect the rights of trafficked children in Ghana from communal attacks.

The state has also been cautioned that modern slavery, in the form of trafficked children working for their masters, is still booming in many parts of Ghana and that a tightened protection for organisations that fight the practice is a sustainable way of ending the menace.

The appeal was made by the Director of End Modern Slavery, a subsidiary of Engage Now Africa, David Kofi Ewusi, at a sensitization programme at Cape Coast on modern-day child slavery and trafficking.

The sensitization event was dubbed ‘Harnessing Youth’s Power to Creating Child Trafficking-free Ghana’ gathered young men and women from all the metropolitan, municipal and districts in the Central Region.
