More than 1 million children are trafficked worldwide each year, and 43 percent are forced into sexual slavery. “Trafficked: a Hope in the Dark,”is a new documentary produced by Christian ministry Vision Beyond Borders, which details sexual trafficking in Nepal and India. Patrick Klein, executive producer of the film, said there are instances of girls as young as 5 years old being taken from villages. Sometimes they’ll actually be sold by their own family members,” he said.
Filmmaker Jennings Barmore said the market for young girls is growing at brothels. Vision Beyond Borders worker Debbie Chai said sex workers never get a break from their degrading lives. If they become pregnant, many of these girls are forced to have abortions. Klein said he’s witnessed this new development in Kathmandu, Nepal. “We’re seeing abortion clinics coming up all over the place providing free abortion services,” he said.
Badar was 15 years old when a “friendly” man offered her a job. She accompanied him to a movie theatre where he drugged her. She fell unconscious, and later awoke in a Mumbai brothel. Klein said he
produced “Trafficked” because people need to become aware of the problem. He also says, “When Christians begin to pray and cry out to God, we see God working.” When these girls come to know Jesus
as their Lord and Saviour, they find forgiveness for their own sins. But they are able to forgive the men and women who have used them,” Klein said. What about Badar? She gained her freedom
when some Christians led the brothel owner to Christ.
