Ghana: 895 Trafficked Ghanaians Rescued

The Minister of Gender, Children and Social Protection (MOGCSP), Mrs Cynthia Morrison has revealed that about 895 victims of human trafficking have been rescued since 2017 by the ministry in collaboration with the Ghana Police Service, Ghana Immigration Service and the Economic and Organised Crime Organization (EOCO)

Addressing a programme in Accra, she described the figures as encouraging compared to those of previous years but added that her outfit would intensify efforts to combat human trafficking across the country.

She explained that the efforts were necessary since perpetrators were now using all strategies to maintain their grip on the trade through various means.

The event on the theme: “Together we end human trafficking now”, was held in collaboration with the Coalition of NGOs Against Child Trafficking (CNACT) and supported by the British High Commission.
