We have been working in this one area for many years now. We believe that building good releationships opens the doors into communities and peoples lives. This is how we help make a difference!
A few moths back a child called Sarah ( name change ) who attends one of our programs decided one night to be incredibly brave and open up about her story. Suffering many years of abuse and trafficking whilst being a child must have been horrific. Imagine being sold over and over again to foreign men and locals too. She just couldn’t take it anymore and had to talk to someone.
After sharing her story and horrific experiences with the police and authorities we were able to make a plan for her and the perpetrators. Through the whole process she was given help and guided through it by our social workers. She was able to receive help, hope and justice. She is now able to sleep safely at night in a warm bed, in a safe place. She is now free to live the life that she really deserves, to be a child again.
With local authorities and Government we arrested a trafficker that has been trafficking children for many years. This took months of hard work and good relationships to make this happen. We traced and tracked down one of the perpetrators who was in Cambodia for the purpose of having sex with young children. This was a huge victory for the community and for her! The victory is all hers and she gets to be free!
Without your help and support our investigation team would never have been able to aid in these arrests. It took months and many long hours to make it all happen. We couldn’t have done anything without her bravery and courage to speak up. Thank you to all who give to our mission here to make this possible.
