Story of "Hope"

Court day
Court day

Hope’s* story begins with a troubled home life. After her biological father left the family, her mother remarried and started a new family. Hope left home in order to escape attempted rape by her stepfather.

This is how she found herself trying to survive on the streets at the age of 13. And this is when she was exploited by a trafficker.

Hope was exploited through live-streamed sexual abuse over the internet. Hundreds of online spectators participated in this advertised “pay-per-view” event.

HUG’s law enforcement partners conducted an investigation of the video, which enabled them to identify and locate Hope.

Hope was traumatized by the broadcast of her abuse for profit and by the separation from her family. She kept telling us that she always want to have the warmth of family. She wished for her mom and dad to be back together and live at home. She was desperately hungry for love. December 18th 2020 was her trial date. Our team flew to Bangkok to be with her the day she had to testify in court. With your donations, we bought her new clothes and a new pair of shoes. Our fear was that the judge would ask her the most traumatizing question:  “Why did you leave home?” (because the answer was so overwhelming). The judge did ask that question and she was in tears. Our team was there to comfort her throughout the trial. 

A team of professionals—including a social worker, investigator, counselor, and prosecutor— walked alongside Hope to guide her through a grueling legal process. Because of her strong testimony and the evidence, Hope’s perpetrator pled guilty to human trafficking.

Today she is back in school and living in a secure location. With support from your giving, Hope is working toward healing and hope for a brighter future.Your donations have also assisted 50 victims of sex trafficking from 19 cases.  In the first quarter of this year (2021) we have already assisted 9 victims from sex trafficking cases. Thank you so much for supporting us- this work would not be possible without each one of you. Thank you again for being a part of Hope’s new life- and many others!
