As you know, the fight against human trafficking is one of World Footprints major causes. In 2002 while on a trip in Europe, Deborah Sigmund first heard the phrase, human trafficking. This prompted her to later found Innocents At Risk, a non-profit organization that was formed to help fight human trafficking.
With all of the development that Dubai is experiencing the country is embracing sustainable developmet during its growth. We spoke to Saud H.
