ABC World News Features IJM, Aftercare Partner
ABC World News Anchor Dan Harris traveled to Cambodia to uncover the devastating reality of child trafficking – and the hope inspired by men and women who have committed their lives to putting an end to this trade. In a moving March 21 ABC World News broadcast, Harris explores the frontlines of the fight against trafficking led by Agape International Missions, International Justice Mission and other partners in Cambodia. Watch the story here.
A group called International Justice Mission regularly sends undercover agents into the brothels to gather video evidence. The group then works with local police to bust suspected sex tourists, oftentimes American men. They also rescue child sex slaves like Bella, a 15-year-old who says she was forced by pimps to have sex every day.”

He interviews several leaders of a model aftercare home operated by Agape International, home to several girls rescued from traffickers and abusive pimps through IJM casework – including Bella, who speaks movingly about her new life in freedom.
