Over the past month, 16 DC Year 12 and 13 students have been busy working towards a goal. This goal is to help stop human trafficking and slavery.
Last weekend these students represented Discovery College to help ‘Stop the Traffik’ by participating in the 24 Hour Race. It was the first time that DC had participate din the event, which saw teams run a continuous relay for 24 hours. Held at the Peak, the event aims to raise awareness to combat the issue of human trafficking while raising funds to benefit anti-slavery charities.
This race included about 30 local and international schools in Hong Kong, with events taking place in Singapore and Kuala Lumpur over the same weekend.
The goal of the Discovery College team is to support The Mekong Club, who aims to ‘create educational platforms, events, forums and resources to raise awareness and capital to combat modern day slavery and human trafficking’.
To help raise funds a bake sale will be held on the 27th November, where an information booth will be set to provide information on the issue, which is said to affect 21 million people worldwide who are regarded as modern days slaves.
If you consider that t is not acceptable for people to be sold, then take action by supporting this DC group. Help make a difference now by donating to the team through the team’s Just Giving account.
