STOP SEX TRAFFICKING PLEASE!!!
2010 August 19, Thursday
June this year, I received an email from The Body Shop inviting me to be part of a campaign to help deter what’s known as the world’s third largest criminal industry after illegal drugs and guns. Sex trafficking.
It is something that does not happen only in poor or third world countries but virtually every country in the world. An estimate of 1.2 million people below the age of 18 are not just kidnapped and sold for sexual exploitation and cheap labour but also abused, beaten and raped. And total profits from this inhumane act totals US$27 billion yearly. Can you imagine anyone you know and care about suffering that???
Of course I didn’t need to even think to agree to it. I mean, I know I’m just gonna be a very small part of it all. But hey, unity is strength. No?
So please have a heart and go to this link and sign the petition to help put an end to all these evil deeds!
Here’s the Singaporean version of the video which myself and other personalities came together to convey the message to all.
The 11 other personalities are Adrian Pang, Paul Foster, Lim Kay Tong, Jack and Rai, Anita Kapoor, Pam Oei, Gayle Nerva, Anna Belle Francis, Dr Loretta Chen and Joe Augustin.
PLEASE PLEASE do your bit and help the innocent souls from being taken away from the loved ones and tortured.
This is a joint movement between ECPAT (End Child Prostitution, Child Pornography and the Trafficking of Children) and The Body Shop.
