Since opening this site in 2014, we have been supplied with mountains of resources, in the form of terabytes of data, from many Governmental agency’s, Non-Profit Organizations, and privately owned businesses.
Among the first resources received, UNICEF’s caught my eye, and what I read kept me awake most of the night. I am reposting 3 parts of this data for a reason:
IF YOU ARE GOING TO POST STATISTICS, AT LEAST POST THE TRUTH.
The last part is finally proven, and this proof will be Our next post.
Domestic Servitude Next Door
There are an estimated 50,000 slaves in the United States and an additional 17,500 are being trafficked into the country every year. That is more people being enslaved annually than during legal slavery in America’s dark history.
**** At least 1 in 6 Child runaways fall into the hands of Sex Traffickers.
Harvesting Child Organs
Taking advantage of the high demand for organ transplants, organized gangs have taken to trafficking children to sell their organs on the black market. One such young girl was abducted from Somalia and smuggled into the United Kingdom in 2013.
Haiti became a hotbed of exploitation in the wake of the devastating 2010 earthquake, which left tens of thousands of children orphaned. Child trafficking was stated to be one of the biggest issues faced by aid workers as they struggled to reunite children with distant relatives and bring others into safe homes.
Even where strict regulations are placed on organ transplants, black markets thrive because people are desperate for transplants they fear may never come through legitimate means. An estimated 70,000 kidneys come annually from the black market worldwide.
Reports on the prevalence of children being trafficked for organ harvesting are varied, but experts fear it is much more common than anyone knows. After all, gangs exploit the most vulnerable and invisible among us and supply a desperate demand. Sometimes, the children are never found after they vanish.
Dancing Boys Of Afghanistan
Afghanistan, Bacha Bazi has been revived in which young boys are taught to dance and sold to wealthy men. The translation means to be interested in children. Poor boys are exploited and become sexually abused slaves.
In a place where women are not allowed to dance in public, boys are made to wear women’s clothing and dance for groups of men. After the shows, the boys are often taken to hotels and subjected to sexual abuse.
An internal investigation for UNICEF found evidence of it in the south and even in Kabul. Men in positions of power manipulate the system to prevent persecution.
