Child abduction is real
Child abduction is real. A child goes missing every five hours in South Africa. This is according to figures released by the South African Police Service Missing Persons Bureau for 2013.
Trafficking in children is a global problem affecting large numbers of children. Human trafficking is the second biggest profit-making crime in the world next to drug trafficking. It is estimated that globally, there are around 27 million people enslaved in the world as we speak. According to UNICEF and World Concern, as many as 1.2 million children are being trafficked every year. Sadly, there is a tremendous demand for children to be traded into forced (cheap) labour or for sexual exploitation.
