“Remove Price Tag, Free Body & Soul” Regular Donation Campaign against Human Trafficking

If one day you woke up and found yourself sold by your relatives, what would you feel? Isn’t human dignity priceless? How can other people put a price tag on a person and sell him/her as a commodity, subject to the owner’s exploitation?

Martha (obscured) spent her early years with her mother who worked as a sex worker in the red-light district of Mumbai, India. “At the age of 16, my mother met a man when she was in Nepal. He said he could refer her to work at better places in the cities, and she ended up being sold to work at the red-light district in Mumbai.” With the help of a generous woman from her hometown, Martha was spared from having to suffer the same fate as her mother’s.

“Every one of us could fall prey to human traffickers with a tiny change of situation,” as expressed time and again by the frontline workers serving sex trafficked victims in Hong Kong, and by our international partners who serve victims in Asia.

The lack of awareness to trafficking practices, limited opportunities to employment and education, and general ignorance to gender inequality and children rights are some of the contributing factors that made the indigenous members in Nepal, India, Myanmar, and northern Thailand, especially women and children like Martha’s mother, vulnerable to enslavement and bonded labour and sexual exploitation.

Since 2008, CEDAR has been supporting partners in Nepal, India, northern Thailand, Myanmar, and near the border of China and Myanmar to fight against human trafficking, which includes teaching communities to prevent human trafficking, rescuing trafficking victims, prosecuting the offenders, providing post-traumatic counselling to victims, and assisting them to start a new life. Today, the threat of human trafficking grows ever worse as it is only trailing drug dealing as the second largest illegal trade sector in the world. Over 40 million people are being trafficked with 70% being women. Join our “Remove Price Tag, Free Body & Soul” Regular Donation Campaign through regular donation on a monthly basis. Let’s stand firm in the battle against human trafficking, and help free bodies and souls!
