Among many society issues, sex trafficking and slavery, especially on little girls, has always been the most disturbing one to my heart. Every time I think of it or heard the cases, I can just feel the pain, the disgust, the anger inside of me. Especially I now also have a daughter myself. I just can’t imagine something close to this happen to her. In fact, I found myself hard to believe a human nature will do such kind of brutal thing to a little girl as young as 6 years old!!! This is really the darkest corner on the earth. I really want to get involved and do something about this issue. That’s why I started this fund raising site after watching the documentary movie “Half the Sky”.
Please join me and support me to reach my goal of raising $1000. Any amount counts.
Following are the ways that you can donate:
1) Donate directly at https://www.somaly.org/donate
2) Visit the empowerment store to buy a survivor-made product
3) You can donate directly here (no need to give the OPTIONAL processing fee, since the site already takes 5% transaction fee)
If you choose the first two methods, please let me know the amount so I can manually enter here). Donation amount or purchasing amount will go into Somaly Mam Foundation.
What is Somaly Mam Foundation?
Girls no older than five are among the thousands of victims the Somaly Mam Foundation has helped rescue and recover from Southeast Asia’s prolific sex trade. Co-founded by Somaly Mam, a survivor of sex trafficking in Cambodia, the Foundation’s vision is modeled after Somaly’s inspiring escape from sexual slavery – ensuring that survivors take charge in reclaiming their lives, fighting back against their oppressors and refusing to turn their backs on those who remain behind.
Help the Foundation liberate victims from this horrendous industry and raise awareness about the brutality of the sex trade, an international criminal enterprise that makes billions of dollars a year by stripping women and girls of their basic human rights and treating them as nothing more than commodities.
For just $25, you can cover the cost of one month of training for a survivor to learn new skills toward a safe and self-determined livelihood.
