The SA (Servants Anonymous) Foundation fights to stop human trafficking and provides long-term recovery programs for survivors of sexual exploitation in Canada, Nepal, Hungary, Greece, Germany and Bulgaria.
29 million people are victims of slavery today; and the vast majority are trafficked girls and young women. “There are more slaves, now, in our time than at any other period in history. We just can’t sit there when this kind of heart-breaking cruelty and injustice is going on”, says Bernie.
“The situation in Nepal is what first motivated me to support SAF”, says Ross. “Nepalese girls as young as 12 are sold by their families or tricked, then taken to India where they are brutalized and introduced to their new life of being abused by dozens of men a day. When they are used up they are discarded”.
Some terrible facts:
Ø Human trafficking is a global criminal business, bigger than the arms trade.Ø An estimated 29 million, mainly women are currently victims of human trafficking.
Ø In Nepal 10-15,000 young women and girls are trafficked to brothels in India each year.
Ø In Hungary young women and girls have been purchased from orphanages.
Ø In Canada the average age of recruitment into the sex trade is 13 years old.
Ø It is estimated that 85-90% of trafficked women were abused as children.
