Trafficking is a grave and serious offence against the law and against humanity. It is a slap in the face of the principles of freedom and justice.

It is against this background that Ghana (on the occasion of the Commemoration of the World Day Against Trafficking in Persons – 30th July, also known as the Blue Day), together with the rest of the world, gathered to reaffirm our commitment to ending human trafficking in the country and around the world.

As a mark of celebration of the Blue Day, the Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection organised a Community Sensitisation at Senya Beraku in the Central Region, yesterday.

The Blue Day, as it is called, is a day for governments around the world to reflect on the progress of the fight against human trafficking, reaffirm commitment to end the practice and outline future policies and plans to combat the practice.

Making her statement, Hon. Otiko Afisah Djaba said Ghana has taken a strong stance against the practice and will fight the perpetrators of these acts till we have eliminated them completely.
