Human Trafficking || Caught in Traffick

On Thursday the 16th of October I attended an event premièring a DVD created by the Merthyr Tydfil Borough Wide Youth Forum to raise awareness of human trafficking. I am, and have been a member of  the Merthyr Borough Wide Forum for a few years, but I was in America when the DVD was being put together.

So this was my outfit for the event. I needed something smart and I love a bit of dog tooth.


Dress - Topshop (old)


Shoes - Tesco/F&F (old)


Bag - Primark £9.00

I arrived at VUE cinema early to help set up and welcome guests which included councillors, people who worked on the production, some professionals including Dr Mwenya Chimba who works on Human Trafficking projects with charities, later in the evening she went on to give an inspirational talk on raising awareness for Human Trafficking.



These are the learning resource packs which are available to download, they are a helpful extra resource for information on human trafficking.


Our evening agendas were perfectly packaged in these little envelops which were so cute!


This guy was the after party entertainment and I must say he was amazing! My new friend and I couldn't stop singing along with him! I introduce you to Nick Pendry, you can listen to him on Sound Cloud here. He was on the Xfactor in 2013 if you recognise him!


I had a great time at the after party, there was a fantastic buffet to go along with the music.

As soon as the DVD is available on YouTube I will link it for you. It was played twice and both times had my hairs on my body standing up and almost had me crying. The hard work the young people put in really paid off. They also won an award for the DVD which was a first young person led DVD on the subject of child abuse and human trafficking. I'm so proud of my little group.
