It’s crazy to say that human trafficking exist and a lot of society don’t care because it never happen to them, their families or someone they know. We as human beings are wired to care about other people, however with time humanity has gone down and all people care is about them self’s or immediate families or friends.

When human trafficking happens it doesn’t just affect the person but everyone around them.
