Day of National Awareness Against Human Trafficking 2024: Each and every individual on the planet is entitled to a happy, healthy life free from fear. Unfortunately, people are frequently stolen of their love of life and forced to live a life of punishment, dread, and crime at the expense of their way of life and health as a result of infamous practices like human trafficking. Often people are trafficked owing to many motives – to join terrorism, or a sex racket or for organ trafficking. The victim is thrust into a terrifying life after all of these, which are primarily carried out against their choice.
Every year, there is a National Human Trafficking Awareness Day to raise awareness of the predicament of victims and the regularized methods that can be implemented to preserve their lives. As we gear up to mark the important day of this year, here are a few facts to keep in mind.
Countless individuals are forcibly removed from their homes and transported to far-off nations on a yearly basis.

This day is set aside to increase awareness, strengthen security, and make sure that no one is being trafficked. It also enables us to sympathize with the victims’ plight and assist them in returning to a normal life.
