The survivors were then locked in a room for two weeks being repeatedly raped all day and night. Men came in shifts until they were completely broken down. The victims were then taken on a rubber dingy to Greece. Twenty of them drowned.
Fast forward...the young girl, one of very few to escape the nightmare of sex trafficking, recounted the story to Christine Caine, founder of The A21 Campaign. Another young woman across the room asked Christine why she had come. Christine answered that she was there to help rescue, restore, and rebuild the lives of victims of sex trafficking. The woman screamed in reply, Then why didn't you come sooner? There are thousands of us in hell, why didn't you come sooner?
Why not sooner? Why indeed? Why aren't all of us doing something about the millions of victims of child sex trafficking? We probably don't know much, if anything, about it. Nor do we know where to start. I'm overwhelmed myself. The good news is that you and I can help! Check out the links on the right of the page for ways you can help right now.
If it were my child that was being trafficked, I would drop everything to save him. I would leverage everyone and everything possible. Doesn't every child deserve the same? We cannot afford for sooner to become later.
