Police in Ghana storm a camp being used to keep children in slavery after one journalist spent weeks infiltrating the traffickers. In this video, CNN correspondent Vlad Duthiers meets the journalist and asks the minister responsible for protecting children what the government is doing to help.

    I am glad to see this exposure of the issue in Ghana, and to hear Nana Oye Lithur reiterate the government's commitment to addressing it. Ghana has a strong foundation of laws and policies to address modern slavery, but needs to commit more resources to assisting in the prevention of trafficking and in reintegration and aftercare support of survivors. There can continue to be raids like the one in this video, but without sufficient shelter space and aftercare, rescued children risk being retrafficked.
