Dingdong Dantes is the new face of the campaign against human trafficking. As human trafficking is getting worst in the country, a need for awareness campaign is needed to educate what it’s all about.
Last year, Dantes was appointed as the Youth Ambassador for the Arts by the National Commission for Culture and the Arts where one of his (Dingdong) advocacies was youth empowerment. He was personally chosen by the NCCA because of his positive and wholesome image.
This year, he’s up for another task. In a GMA news report, Justice Secretary Leila de Lima told reporters that Dingdong Dantes was chosen as the new ambassador of the government’s anti-trafficking campaign.
In line with this, Dingdong will host a documentary program in support of MTV Exit Campaign, which is a campaign against human trafficking. The said documentary program is entitled ‘Enslaved’ which will be aired in GMA News TV this coming November 27 at 9:55 in the evening.
In an interview with Dingdong by a GMA reporter, he said, “…etong human trafficking…if you really look into it closely…it involves…majority kabataan, e,… and…ang objective for this…to be eliminated or for it to be stopped, is for you to know what human trafficking is all about.”
