The Programmes Manager of EZM, David Nii Laate during the presentation for the items highlighted how grateful the team is for the partnership. He mentioned how the partnership has enlightened his team about the existence and nature of human trafficking in Ghana.

In response, the West Africa Director of IJM, Anita Budu, said, “IJM appreciates the partnership with Eugene Zuta Ministries in creating awareness about child trafficking and raising funds to support victims of child trafficking.”
Ms. Budu emphasised how IJM strives to find innovative ways in creating more awareness of human trafficking by partnering with NGO’s, government partners, the media and influencers.
