Five girls, ages 13 to 17 were rescued and joined our community care program in Cambodia. One 13-year-old girl was rescued from a bar. The others were about to leave their village to begin work in similar establishments. Our agents discovered their situation during village canvassing and were able to take action before the children entered the sex industry. Now enrolled in our programs, the children will all receive care that specifically addresses the vulnerabilities that were pressuring them into exploitation with a customized freedom plan.
Five girls in another country in South East Asia were rescued from trafficking and reunited with their families.
