Travelling and exploring the world is an exciting, invigorating and life changing experience. However, even the most gung-ho world explorer is very aware of the risks when travelling. In reality though, most people are not going to encounter any serious problems even when visiting the most underdeveloped countries. The danger is not much higher than staying at home.
Can you imagine always living under threat of a much more serious nature? What if your sister was kidnapped and sold as someone’s property? What if the same thing might happen to you?
What if it that actually did happen? What if there was nothing anyone could or would do about it? It’s impossible to imagine the horror that you and your loved ones would experience.
This is what happened to Ben Randall’s friend, lets call her “M”. She was just 16 years old when she was taken from from her home in Vietnam. No one knows exactly what happened to her, but it’s highly probably that she was sold as a bride or into the sex trade.
Sadly, this is not an isolated incident. It happens to people far too often all around the world, but the poorest are the easiest targets. Human trafficking is an industry worth tens of billions of dollars, affecting tens of millions of people in almost every country. All too often, very little is done about it.
Ben is helping to fight this. He has given up a secure job and has returned to Asia where he is making a documentary film about the search for M and to raise awareness about human trafficking. It’s call The Human, Earth Project.
Ben has committed all his savings to the project and now needs our help to get this story out to the world. Watch this short video to learn more about the project and how you can contribute.
