Nightmare Come Alive

4 May

Have you ever had a bad dream so many times it felt like it was becoming real? The same thing happened to Sreypov Chan, a young Cambodian woman, except her dream was real. At the age of seven Sreypov was kidnapped and sold to a brothel in Cambodia’s capital city, to work as a sex slave. The person who made this sale, was her own mother. For years, pimps forced Sreypov to have sex with as many as 20 men per day. Not meeting her quota or when she tried to escape led to her being punished in horrible ways. She would be burned with a hot poker, covered with biting insects, and more. “I wanted to die,” she says.

At the age of ten, Sreypov managed to escape the horrible brothel she was being held at, and started her life over. Today, she is ready to tell her story in hope that it will help open the world’s eyes at what is going on behind closed doors. Many people may think she was probably one of a few unlucky girls, but truth be told she is not alone. More than 12 million people are forced into prostitution and slave labor across the world. Today, Sreypov is a 20 year old girl living a free life trying to help raise awareness in the slave laboring industry.

Human Trafficking

4 May

 

 

Imagine yourself, walking with friends down a dirt road talking about anything and everything. Then all of a sudden, a group of men appear out of nowhere, and kidnap you or all of your friends. They threaten to kill you if you don’t follow their rules. Soon you find yourself trapped in a room where there is hardly any light. You then hear a voice, a man’s voice in particular. Maybe they’re coming to save you. Think again.

Many girls these days are being kidnapped and forced into sex slavery. Many girls are under the age of 16 when they are forced into sex slavery. They each have up close to 40 and as less as 10 clients a day. What kind of person would do this you ask? There could be anyone around you that would. The slave industry is at its worst now than it has ever been.
