KZNSB JOINS THE PLEDGE TO STOP HUMAN TRAFFICKING
11 October 2016
KZN Sharks Board joins Umgeni Community Empowerment Centre (UCEC) and Springbok Rugby legend Andre Joubert at the 3rd Annual Stop Human Trafficking 5km Awareness Family Walk. The dual purpose of this walk was to raise as much awareness on Human Trafficking as possible and to raise much-needed funds for the running and upkeep of our crisis centre, Shiloh House.
This centre is used to accommodate and rehabilitate victims of abuse, domestic violence and Human Trafficking survivors. Human trafficking is one of the fastest growing crimes in the world and it is now tied with the illegal arms industry as the second largest international criminal enterprise, after the illegal drug trade.
The International Labour Organisation estimates that there are currently at least 12.3 million adults and children in forced labour, bonded labour, or commercial sexual servitude at any given time.
