We live in a world where vulnerable people are lured away from their families with promises of money and a better life. Once in the hands of traffickers, they’re deceived, coerced, and blackmailed into lives of commercial sexual exploitation, often never to see their families again.
Only 2% will ever be rescued, and the ones who are have to endure not only the difficultly of coping with what they’ve been through, but also facing their perpetrator, often standing only feet away to bring them to justice in court.

Through generous donations from Kiwis, and the prosecution of many criminals last year, it’s estimated that 6,000 people were saved from being trafficked in Thailand. This statistic gives us hope that one day this evil industry won’t be a viable option for perpetrators. But to get there, we need to stand with her now.
