Even nowadays there are a number of children and people who are suffering. Have you ever heard of the slave trade? The 23rd of August is the international day of the remembrance of the Slave Trade and its Abolition. Do you know that there are children who are being stolen, purchased, separated from their families, and also used by criminals to earn money through them? There are also adults who find themselves working in hardship conditions and find it difficult to find another job. All over the world, there are a hundred countries where the slave trade takes place.
