Day : Four from the BB Campaign

Day Four features a photograph by Rushda Mohinudeen.

Each year young women and even younger girls from distant villages are coaxed to Colombo with false promises of well paying jobs. When they reach Colombo however, they’re are forced into the sex worker trade.

It’s involuntary. It’s illegal. It’s against fundamental human rights.

Watch this blog for the next 12 days. We’ll be posting a featured photograph each day till 10 December as part of WMC campaign against GBV.
