Cycle Against Trafficking Challenge – KZN
October 5, 2015 - October 7, 2015
“Durban based company LexisNexis South Africa is once again on a mission to create awareness and raise funds for charities active in the field of anti-human trafficking, with its second annual Cycle Against Trafficking Challenge set to take place from the Drakensberg to Durban between 5 and 7 October.
The challenge aims to create awareness around the statistics that more than one million people, mostly women and children, are trafficked around the world annually. Closer to home is the fact that South Africa serves as a major source, transit and destination country for many of these victims. LexisNexis South Africa is therefore committed to combating human trafficking by offering direct financial support, through promoting awareness, sponsoring victims support and assisting with training and education initiatives.”
