It has been said: “If we release these people [these slaves] they’re just going to go back.”  “In our experience, our staff works with people who are free and walks along with them.  The journey is hard, but it happens.”  Then within a few years they are able to get their own jobs and education.

Effective US legislation and policy has been translated in the saving of lives.  For example, kids who’ve been saved in Cambodia from a life under a local pimp.

From World vision guy in DC:

“We must reiterate this:  All it takes is 10 phone calls to a Congressional official to make something a major issue.”
