Cover Story

Trapped Trafficked Terrorised

Thousands of women and children are trafficked to foreign lands with promises of a better future. More often than not, however, they end up tortured and enslaved, forced into the flesh trade. While most never make it back home, those who do are socially stigmatised and some of them are compelled to return to their lives of torture. Creating awareness about trafficking and empathy towards survivors is crucial for preventing the cycle from continuing.
