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.
