Empowering Youth Voices against Human Trafficking

On the 26th of April a seminar for empowering youth voices to combat human trafficking was held in the American Center. I was privileged enough to attend it and it was really an eye opener. Human Trafficking is the action or practice of illegally transporting people from one country or area to another, typically for the purposes of forced labor or commercial sexual exploitation. It is a major issue in our country but is often ignored as non-existent. We feel that human trafficking is a problem which only affects the illiterate or the poor.

HYDRATION:  Keeping in mind, the severe heat and the loss of water from the body due to sweat, one need to keep oneself hydrated time to time. Not only drinking of lots of water will help, but it will be more benefitted if one can add some salt, sugar and may be a bit of lemon with the water. Carry a bottle of water whenever you move out of the house.   INCLUDE GREEN VEGE
