In case you were wondering if trafficking has ceased, with all of the stay at home/shelter in place orders not just here, but across the globe, here is a shocking story.
Just last week in Southeast Asia, operators went undercover to a brothel suspected of selling children for sex. Their suspicions were verified when the house madam was eager to provide small children to our operators.
This story is punctuated by the sick irony that the madam, believing our operators to be paying customers, provided them with face masks and hand sanitizer before giving them access to the unprotected children. These children are left vulnerable to atrocities that are arguably far more devastating than any virus could inflict.
Operators along with law enforcement were able to successfully free the children and they are now receiving proper care. Human trafficking has absolutely not stopped during this time. Our children are more vulnerable than ever!
