Stop Human Trafficking in Cambodia

Human trafficking is the trade of humans for the purpose of forced labor, sexual slavery, or commercial sexual exploitation for the trafficker or others. Every year, millions of men, women, and children all around the world fall victim to this rising issue and are then stuck, unable to receive assistance.

The country of Cambodia is a source and destination for women and children to be caught up in this so-called business. According to UNICEF, thousands of them are lured, sold, and kidnapped into the sex industry each year. They are often betrayed by their neighbors, friends, relatives, guardians and even boyfriends or parents, and tricked with false promises of a better life or well-paid work. They are then forced to pay off ‘debts’ for transportation, health and living expenses, subdued with rape, violence and torture and sold from brothel to brothel.

I believe that we need to not only become more aware that this is going on but also, take action for the innocent lives that are being disrupted.
