Hanh was 17 when she was trafficked to China. She was invited by a classmate to a nearby town to shop; everything seemed innocent, but her “friend” had lined up someone to buy Hanh. For the next 6 months Hanh was trapped in an underground brothel, but luckily, she was able to contact her family and explain her desperate situation. Our team were alerted to the case and went immediately to find Hanh.
A dramatic escape
After finding her whereabouts, our team engineered a dramatic rescue out of the brothel. They raced back to Hanoi, where Hanh was finally reunited with her worried family. Two of Hanh’s traffickers were also arrested that day. She is still recovering, but will soon return to Grade 11 and hopes to finish high school next year.
