YOUTH AWARE OF HUMAN TRAFFICKING

Maseru, April 13 — Following the Memorandum of Understanding signed by Beautiful Dream Society (BDS) and Lesotho Mounted Police Service (LMPS) on issues relating to human trafficking, the agency took to the streets of Maseru to enquire on how much people knew about human trafficking.
