Do the numbers 80,000 or 2,950,000 mean anything to you?
In my weekly blog, I talk about how shocked I have been by did you know
statistics. Here's what I mean...

Today, slavery has a new name human trafficking.

countries, but rather it is a problem that festers beneath the surface of
our own backyards.
