Anti-Slavery Day Oct 18th

Somila was 16 when a trafficker took her from her home on an Assam tea plantation.

Her family lived in poverty and the trafficker deceived her with promises of work and a better life. Instead she was trafficked into domestic work – unable to leave, abused by her employers and with all of her wages going straight to the trafficker.

After a 3 year ordeal Somila was reunited with her father – but many others trafficked from India’s tea plantations never see their loved ones again.

Those like Somila need our protection. And with Anti-Slavery Day coming up on October 18th, now is the perfect time to take action and help prevent human trafficking.

    Kevin are there any events planned for Sunday for Anti-Slavery day? Given Ipswich and Suffolk’s honourable history when it comes to ending Legal Slavery?
