“My mode of living has extraordinarily changed due to human trafficking.
Our solid future, on which we stand, now lies in the hands of wicked traffickers.
Oh mother Africa, I am tired of being legalistic and complicated to others.
Is this all my achievement? Why don’t you punish traffickers for these crimes against humanity?”
— Ahiadorme, Sakumono Estate, Tema, From our book Our Voices, We Must Be Heard
