    Story
    (47)

    Born in a village deep in the Cambodian forest, Mam was sold into sexual slavery by her grandfather when she was 12 years old. For the next decade, she was shuttled through the brothels that make up the sprawling sex trade industry of Southeast Asia. Trapped in this dangerous and desperate world, she suffered the brutality and horrors of human trafficking - rape, torture, deprivation - until she managed to escape with the help of a French aid worker.

    Story

    If you have only a little knowledge of the evils of human trafficking, this book is the perfect primer. It puts a name, a face, a soul to the countless faceless victims, and it gives us the strength to know that if this woman can overcome and achieve so much despite her humble and tragic beginnings, that we too can affect change by our actions and choices.

    When I was much younger, maybe 16 or 17, I saw a news story on Dateline or 60 Minutes about a Doctor from the US that had traveled to Cambodia to take advantage of the poor children in Cambodia's sex trade industry. That segment moved me to do research on Cambodia's History, the growing human trafficking trade both here in the states and abroad, and modern slavery in general. I have been keeping informed on the issues and challenges ever since which is how I first learned of Somaly Man, and there is no stronger voice for the fight against these evils than that of Somaly Mam.

    Read her story, share her story, help restore innocence.
