What the officers didn’t know was that Hnin had been sold into slavery – twice. Tricked by people she thought were her friends, Hnin had been sold, assaulted by her captors, starved and forced to bear children. In one home, she had to sleep
with ten family members to get pregnant.
It was a nightmare that Hnin only escaped after three years – and only narrowly.
Now, when the officers saw Hnin’s injuries, they believed her. With the help of World Vision, Hnin got the opportunity to testify against her trafficker in court.
Today, she has had the support to start her own small business. But she continues to tell her story to raise awareness of trafficking – a horror that continues to ensnare hundreds ofthousands of women and girls each year.
