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.
She was eventually believed by the police officers – but Hnin’s story of recovery was just beginning. Because people like you were supporting World Vision through sponsorship, World Vision could help Hnin testify in court and bring her traffickers to justice. We also gave her the support to start a small business and reintegrate into the community.
Hnin is a true survivor. She continues to tell her story to raise awareness of trafficking – a horror that continues to ensnare hundreds of thousands of women and girls each year.
