Ghanaian gospel sensation Eugene Zuta has partnered with the International Justice Mission (IJM) to raise awareness about child trafficking and support victims of the crime. As part of the launch of Zuta’s sixth album, “God Is,” the artist activated a social component of the project dubbed “Rescue A Child.” This campaign raised funds to support IJM’s work of protecting and restoring victims of human trafficking.
In total, the partnership donated 72 rescue packs to IJM, valued at GHC 29,000. These packs contain essential items for child survivors of trafficking at the point of rescue. The donation is a significant boost to IJM’s efforts to combat human trafficking in Ghana by equipping institutions and law enforcement agencies to investigate and respond to cases of trafficking.
David Nii Laate, the Programs Manager of Eugene Zuta Ministries, reiterated the importance of the partnership, saying that the ministry is committed to supporting the fight against human trafficking in Ghana. The West Africa Director of IJM, Anita Budu, expressed gratitude for the partnership, stating that IJM appreciates the collaboration in creating awareness about child trafficking and raising funds to support victims of the crime.
For the most part, the partnership between Eugene Zuta Ministries and IJM is an exemplary model of how individuals and organizations can leverage their influence to tackle social issues like human trafficking. It highlights the need for collective action and collaboration in combating social vices that affect vulnerable members of society. By raising awareness and resources to support the fight against human trafficking, we can build safer and more resilient communities that prioritize the protection of human rights and dignity.
In a nutshell, the “Rescue A Child” campaign is an excellent initiative that underscores the power of music and art to drive social change. It is a call to action for all Ghanaians to join the fight against human trafficking and support efforts to protect and restore victims of the crime. We must continue to raise awareness about the devastating impact of human trafficking on individuals, families, and communities and work together to build a world where everyone can live free from exploitation and abuse.
