Remember Nhu

Remember Nhu is a nonprofit organization that works to prevent girls and boys from being trafficked. Because the cost of rescuing prostitutes is astronomically high and the success rate astronomically low, they use their resources to prevent it happening to as many children as possible.

The impetus for the organization is Nhu, who I met a few days ago. She is both sweet and outgoing. She has braces and is generous, even with her favorite food of dried persimmons (which are delicious). Meeting her now, after being rescued from what was likely to be the kind of hellish life Somaly Man describes, I never would have guessed her testimony.
