HUMAN trafficking is not a personal issue; it is a community problem, hence, its solution must also come from the community.
“Tingog sa Akong Kaagi,” a play based on real stories of human trafficking from the book “I Have a Voice,” will be staged today and tomorrow at The Stage of Elizabeth Mall. The goal is to inform the community about the trafficking problem in Cebu and the rest of the country.
“I Have a Voice” is a compilation of real stories of human trafficking edited and published by Sr. Angela Reed and Marietta Latonio.
The play is in observance of the International Campaign for the Elimination of Violence Against Women and Children (VAWC) with the theme, “VAW-FREE Community Starts with Me.”
This effort by the Villa Maria Good Shepherd Sisters Inc. also aims to raise funds for its facilities to continue serving survivors of human trafficking.
Villa Maria Good Shepherd Sisters Inc. is a non-government organization that provides help and assistance to female victims of human trafficking and prostitution. It has four facilities: Kadasig Community Center, Good Shepherd Welcome House, Good Shepherd Home and Good Shepherd HEART. (PR)
