FERNANDINO youth from several villages in the City of San Fernando, Pampanga underwent a lecture on human trafficking on July 23, 2021, at a religious site in Barangay San Agustin.
Hosted by the City Government of San Fernando and its partners, the activity was held in consonance with the observance of “National Anti-Trafficking in Persons Awareness Month” and the “World Day Against Trafficking in Persons” happening this July 30.
Spearheaded by the City’s local committee on trafficking, child pornography, and violence against women and children, the conference featured speakers from the religious, peace and order, and public governance sectors.
The participants, mostly “disadvantaged” children and mendicants, were given insights on the causes and effects, cycle, victims and prevention of human trafficking.
The program ended with a ceremonial stamping of painted hands on a canvas, marking the participants’ pledge to work with the city to end human trafficking. (PR)
