When you travel you think about safety. You buy travel insurance. You might register with your government’s embassy, just in case. You reassure your mother that you’ll be fine.
But imagine if you were kidnapped and sold to strangers. Unlikely?
That’s exactly what happened to Ben Randall’s friend M, a 16 year-old girl from northern Vietnam who accepted a ride from someone she knew, but never made it home.
It happens to people far too often all over the world. Human trafficking is an industry, affecting tens of millions of people and worth tens of billions of dollars. Most of the victims are female, and many are just girls when they are taken. Many of these girls are then sold into prostitution or marriage. M’s friends and family believe that she was taken to China and fear the worst.
Ben wanted to do what he could to help, but what difference could he make with an international problem affecting millions?
Ben is in Asia searching for what happened to M and is filming a full-length documentary to bring more awareness to the global problem of human trafficking. He needs a little help to finish the documentary and get this story out to the world.
