I received this story from the A21campaign (http://www.theA21campaign.org) , a story about a girl rescued and brought to the A21campaign shelter. The International Organization for Migration hase estimated that nearly 500 000 thousand women are brought to Europe as victims of human trafficking. This is the story of only one of these thousands of women.
“When I was 13 my family sold me to a 40 year old Romanian man who raped me continually. I eventually fell pregnant and had a baby girl. The Romanian man took my baby and abandoned me in Athens.
That day, 5 men approached me and asked why I was crying. They told me they would take care of me and keep me safe. I had nowhere else to go, so I went with them. Nothing happened that first night. The next day, the men paid 23 Euros for my train ticket, and took me to a town 7 hours away. When we arrived, they took me to an apartment, locked me up, and then raped and beat me over and over again. They brought many different men to me and forced me to have sex with them. They made me cook and clean the apartment, and would beat me if it wasn’t good enough.
Finally, one of the neighbors’s called the police. I was being raped by a ‘client’ when the police raided the apartment, rescued me and took me to The A21 Campaign shelter. I was 14 years old. “
I know it´s hard to read about but let us not be discouraged. Organizations like A21campaign fight for these women.
You are important in the fight for freedom! Please note that copying this picture or any part of the story is allowed only with the permission of the A21campaign(http://www.theA21campaign.org)

Jag vet att denna historia skär i hjärtat men låt oss inte bli nedstämda organisationer såsom A21campaign kämpar för frihet för dessa kvinnor/barn. Tack vare en organisation som denna fick denna unga flicka komma till en tillflyktsplats.
