Radhika's Story

It thoroughly shocked me to read about the prevalence of human trafficking today. Radhika's courage and love for her son eventually saved her but what of the other young people who are forced into this disgusting lifestyle? The government in these countries have to act to stop the traffickers. Voices need to be heard.
