Cape Town Tourism throws down the gauntlet to human traffickers in the final countdown to the FIFA World Cup next month
Cape Town Tourism, CEO, Mariëtte du Toit-Helmbold, has thrown down the gauntlet to human traffickers in the final countdown to the FIFA World Cup next month.

In a hard-hitting press statement, Du Toit-Helmbold, whose organisation is a member of Fair Trade in Tourism SA (FTTSA), points out that this week the Cape Town Tourism welcomes visitors from all over the world, but not those who come with the intention to exploit women and children.

She says the protection of women and children, through tourism is essential, adding that, “When people travel with the intention to exploit women and children, it becomes a matter of interest for tourism.”
