Book released to create awareness
Every minute, a person is being kidnapped in the country. In all likelihood, it could be a woman, who will be then treated to sexual harassment and violence.
Also prevalent in the country is the rampant sale of babies by people who cannot make ends meet.
What is required to counter these social ails is planned efforts to create awareness among the public, District Collector R. Lilly has said.
She was receiving the first copy of the book, ‘Stop Trafficking' released by special UN emissary, Mr. Stevesak.
She also released stickers to create awareness on eradication of human trafficking and others evils.
The book by UN and the stickers by Agape Foundation are efforts to create awareness against human trafficking.
The stickers would be pasted on the autos and public utility vehicles. People should cooperate for the mission to prevent these evils from the society, Ms. Lilly said.
If they came across any kind of ill-treatment to the human beings including trafficking, violence and sexual harassment, they should immediately inform the nearest police station or the NGOs, she added.
Mr. Angamuthu, Regional Transport Officer, Mr. Daniel Ambrose, President, Don Bosco Trust and Mr. Alexander, founder president Agape Foundation and others were present at the book release.
