How many testimonies make a lawyer cry in court? On the witness stand, Ka recounted her life in brothel slavery. She remembered the pain and loneliness she endured, along with humiliating abuse from strange men. She is just a teenager, but she spoke well—clearly describing her traffickers’ crimes. Ka’s words broke the prosecutor’s heart. Your donations have provided her with a place to heal, an aftercare home where staff members love her and help her face her memories with exercise and music. But Ka’s fight for justice prolongs the symptoms of trauma. Pray for this brave young woman and for others like her.
