THE Department of Social Welfare and Development in Central Visayas (DSWD-7)  joined the international celebration of the “Day Against Human Trafficking” last Dec. 12 by posting anti-human trafficking posters on the public utility buses at the Cebu North and South bus terminals and on passenger jeepneys in Metro Cebu.

Twenty-five staff from the DSWD-7 wearing red t-shirts  joined the activity, along with the members of the  Regional Inter-Agency Committee on Anti-Trafficking or RIACAT.

This year’s  celebration had the theme “Komunidad at pamahalaan magkakaisa, human trafficking ay wakasan na.”

DSWD-7 Women’s Welfare specialist Rosemarie Salazar said the international and cross border trafficking of women and children remains one of the worst forms of human rights violations and it continues to increase.
