It’s Tuesday. So…it’s blog day! My week, so far, has been hectic, with Christmas bookings flooding in and with repair work still on the go.
For something more relaxing I’ll rewind to the weekend when we took a fantastic trip up the lake for a spot of:
Fish Eagle Watching
And a Lesson in Boat Steerage!
It’s safe to say I shall not be becoming a ship captain anytime soon but I did manage to avoid tipping the boat and got us successfully away from:
This Dark (but incredible) Cloud
All in all, a successful trip!
At the weekend I also noticed this massive billboard not far from Nkhata Bay:
Human trafficking is one of those issues that seems too horrific to be true… but unfortunately not so.
When faced with something of this scale it’s easy to feel powerless to do anything but leading agencies have said the biggest missing link in the fight against trafficking is community awareness, action and information.
On that note, here are some of my favorite ideas on what individuals can do to help combat human trafficking 🙂 (and a dramatic picture of me from my university days!)
1. Learn some more about the issue. Be aware of the signs of trafficking and how to report it.
3. Encourage companies to take steps to investigate and eliminate slavery and human trafficking in their supply chains and to publish the information for consumer awareness.
4. Ask a local MP what they are doing to address human trafficking in the area, show them it’s an issue of importance to the community.
5. Donate to a charity supporting the cause.
