He’s 13 years old. He should be playing soccer after school. He should be hanging out with friends. He should be playing video games.
Instead, this 13-year-old boy was forced to have sex and give sexual services to strangers in back alleys. Multiple times a night.
He was controlled and sold by a Japanese gang in a major city in Thailand. There wasn’t much hope for his escape.
But you believed with us in a world where young boys shouldn’t be sold for sex. You helped fund the investigations and support needed to take this child off the streets and out of abuse.
And it worked.
Now he’s free. He’s living in a shelter for children and is receiving support to go back to school. The police are still working with authorities to make arrests in this case.
Thank you for fighting for his freedom. Your support means the world to us – most especially, it means the world to him.
