Emergency Medical Sciences students have helped to combat human trafficking by raising awareness on how to prevent falling victim to modern day slavery.

A group of students from the second-year Bachelor of Emergency Care class has partnered with anti-human trafficking organisation, A21, and conducted presentations at a number of events during the year.
To increase their reach, they also conducted an interview on Bok Radio.
The students undertook the project as part of the requirements for the subject of Primary Health Care.
The group consisted of Angelique Groenewald, Ed-Ruleen Kondowe, Guy Schiever, Jarred Brown, Ju-waldt Sieberhagen and Michael Watson,
“Presentations were always received well, with many people coming forward afterwards and asking questions or to schedule a follow up presentation. Information booths enabled us to connect more personally with people by engaging in one-on-one conversation. It was incredible to see how little people know about a crime that is so prevalent in their communities and even more so to be afforded the opportunity to educate them about the unseen dangers that face them,” Guy said.
