Although she’s just 14 years old, Kim was desperate to find work.
Coming from a very poor ethnic village, Kim’s parents had to constantly stretch whatever little they had to make ends meet.
When the pandemic hit and jobs started to vanish, the family’s resources began shrinking. Eventually, there was simply nothing left to stretch, and Kim had to leave school to look for work.
Someone took advantage of Kim’s desperation to lure her into a trap. The teenager thought she was going to work in a factory nearby, but found herself exploited in a karaoke bar that was a front for prostitution.
Her nightmare ended when one of the girls trapped with her managed to call for help. But many more girls and young women are in similar situations; new calls for help keep coming.
Your gift today will bring girls like Kim back to safety, ensure their recovery, and pave their way towards bright futures.
