I was one of those people that did not know that human trafficking exists. Or maybe I just did not want it to exist.

Human trafficking/Sex slaves/People being sold in South Africa? Hmmm. Then I thought, ok maybe, but not that often. And not in SA at least, maybe in other countries, yes.

Marionette van Deventer from Stop Trafficking of People asked me to take some behind the scene shots for their “2010 Human Traffic Campaign“. Their organisation was started at the beginning of 2009 by Corinne Sandenbergh and the aim of the campaign is to make people aware of what Human Trafficking is and also to give them practical ways in which they can get involved.

I loved shooting people like Shado Twala, Antoinette Kellerman, Thuli Zuma and the 2 girls from Freshly Ground, but I was SHOCKED by the statistics on Human Trafficking in SA, specifically in connection with the Soccer World Cup 2010. Please do yourself a favour by following this link. Quentin Krog and Floyed de Vaal, the crazy cool creative guys from Firestorm Production put together two videos that is both entertaining and freakishly informative. It’s definitely worth the watch…and to Tweet…and Facebook…and to send to your mother…and friend…and the rest of the world!!!!

And if possible, act on it. To be shocked alone has never helped anyone.

    Lizelle, dis wonderlik dat jy die forum wat jy het om baie mense te bereik gebruik om hierdie afskuwelike ding onder mense se aandag te bring – en die foto’s doen dit waarskynlik selfs beter as woorde

    Uitstekend- so belangrik om die boodskap van hierdie en ander social ills so ver and vinnig as moontlik te versprei. “Defend the cause of the fatherless, plead the case of the widow…” is deel van die hele gospel. :)

    Lizelle, eerstens wil ek se dat jy ‘n uitstekende fotograaf is en ek geniet dit altyd om nuwe meesterstukke van jou te sien.

    Tweedens, ek woon in New York, maar is oorspronklik van SA en wil graag weet wat ek van die kant af kan doen om meer betrokke te raak by die projek? Ek weet van baie Amerikaners wat SA toe gaan kom vir die wereldbeker en ek wil dit graag onder hulle aandag bring! Hoe kan ek betrokke raak?

    Groete
    Inge
