More on Sumangali:

We don’t know if the clothes we wear have been made by someone who has been trafficked. Throughout the supply chain of a garment workers are physically, emotionally and sexually harmed and abused. We want to prevent this.

The clothes that we buy and wear arrive on shop shelves after a long journey starting at the source, cotton being a main contributor. Cotton is grown and harvested in faraway fields, spun, dyed and woven into fabric in factories, to be sold to consumer markets all over the world.

The documentary Sumangali was made in response to a promise Carolyn Kitto (Director STOP THE TRAFFIK) and Suzanne Kim (Film-maker) made to a group of trafficking survivors to tell their stories to the world. They wanted their stories to be told in the hope the world would listen and trafficking would end.

You can be part of making that happen.
