Every year, thousands of children in Ghana are sent to Lake Volta to a life of modern slavery in the fishing industry. Many come from Church communities.

Unacceptable and unthinkable that children are used and abused by adults that should know better! Done to make more money --- greed and power have permeated all areas of life on this planet.

Noted and signed. As another Care friend reminds me, many places in Africa are so beyond poor that they may think they're giving their children and/or their families the only help they can to maybe stay alive. However, the thought of slavery at age eight goes back to Dickensian England with all its horrors.

S & N, thanks. This is appalling and needs to be stopped immediately. This is not what the life a child should be. Can you imagine what they will be like when grown up?
