Fact of the Day: Mauritania Abolitionists

Mauritania was the last country in the world to officially abolish slavery which happened in 1981. However it still is a problem for the country as the guarantee of human rights is not enforced very well.

Mauritania isn't the only place where there is slavery today. I would like to see this scourge rooted out and destroyed forever.
