      at least she planning to do something about it!! you don't need to have a college degree or education in order to make a difference. she can use her celebrity status to broaden the awareness of human trafficking which something a person with a college degree cannot do. Rather than antagonizing the person just be appreciative that at least Americans like her and Angelina Jolie and many others are representing the United States in a positive way rather than perceive as warmonger imperialists or so forth.

        Totaly agree. The world is full of two kind of people:
        *Tthose who stand up and make a difference, live take life by the horns...
        *And those who just sit and see the world moves in front of their eyes, never do nothing.

        I don't think it's wise to criticize her efforts. She is neither a policewoman nor a diplomat but she's done what a human needs to do. Nobody has asked her to involve but herself. It's her willingness and desire to help. Her effort is highly praiseworthy. I would encourage everyone to help whether it be in terms of time, money, effort or word of mouth. Then you can stand up and proudly say "I have helped for the social cause and awareness" .

        MAYBE THOSE ACTORS OR OTHER CELEBRITIES ARE DOING THE JOB OUR GOVERNMENTS WE ELECT, THE WORLD BODIES AND THE UN HUMAN RIGHTS BIG SHOTS ARE NOT DOING, although getting much more money from taxpayers than celebrities do. Those could be travelling on a yacht or spend time away from ALL THE PROBLEMS, with their millions, but they don't. They KNOW that silly people who think they are more important than non-stars will give more generously because of them. So, good for them to use that stupid thinking of people to help those who need it. THEY don't make themselves celebrities, do they?
        However, WHEN IT COMES TO NEPAL, the CLOSE PROXIMITY OF CHINA and its aim at taking over the land, the INFLUENCE ON THE WAY THEY DO BUSINESS, with BRIBING FOR ANYTHING, we are having a problem with USING THE POLICE THERE to ENFORCE LAWS OF DECENCY.
        If we are talking TRAFICKING, just think they are even SELLING TO THE CHINESE BURNT TIBETAN MONKS that those same Nepalis have 'SAVED' by putting out the fire. Sure, when they represent a little fortune WHEN THEY SELL THEM TO THOSE CHINESE MONSTERS.... WHO BEAT THEM UP on top of those burns!
        And those are the NEPALI POLICE we are counting on to SAVE THE GIRLS??? A bit draughty that country, with open doors to India and to China, FOR THE RIGHT PRICE!!!
        Good luck Demi! You sure would need a ... BETTER HALF to face those monsters!

      About The Selling of Daughters in the Bible.
      That was said in 1 Timothy 2:12 and Exo.21:7 and god justify for a child to get married if the child or the partner can afford it just to avoid fornication bec. some were matured in their early age like Lina Media pregnated when she was 5 years old and Bobby Fischer beat men in chess and become rich in his early age.
      The price is right bec. the food and shelter for her are for the buyers expense. That's better than parents leave their child in the street bec. they couldn't afford it. That's not Islam to kill her without reason. I think they should have licence midwife to help her to insure it's safety. If you think you can care the child better than the buyer then buy her.
      Moses law was also design to remember not to do the things that Adam and Eve did which they fall from paradise to tribulation.
      Rich people usually in Saudi, America, and others will not do that but poor people like in Afghanistan, India, and others usually sell their children bec. they could not feed them.
      If you well stop the slave buyers then no their daughters will not be sold and they'll dying hungry, and there's possibility they will become prostitute. What those people who want to help can do about this is either to buy slaves and set them free, give money to parents in order they will not sell their children bec. they could not afford to feed them, give money to fathers who already sold their daughter as long as they not yet married to their masters so that they can redeem them or adopt them in honest way not to let them call them as parents as what Jesus said Matt. 23:9.
      They don't like to buy male slaves bec. according to Exo. 21 that they will be free after 6 years.

      This reply is for all of YOU supposed people, who question Demi Moore's qualifications for being an obvious humanitarian. First of all, the last time I looked there were NO qualifications required for caring for people and trying to positively impact their lives, especially in a crisis situations. There is no degree required to be empathetic and have sympathy for people, who are clearly being exploited and abused. We, as human beings are obligated to intervene on the behalf of people, who have no voice and cannot help themselves in horrific and inhumane conditions Just try looking at YOUR perfect little world and imagine a relative of YOURS was being abused. How would YOU feel or moreover would you feel anything? It is a sad state of affairs when another supposed human being questions someone's ability to care and improve another person's life. Who are YOU people? And I use the term "people" loosely. I pray that YOU change YOUR ways of thinking and can only hope that YOU learn to love something that is greater than YOUSELVES!

Celebrities have an AUDIENCE! A larger audience than you will ever have in all of your large office buildings. That is their power. Why are you attacking them for trying to do something good with that power? Does it make you feel better when you look in the mirror?

      If you think this is only an overseas problem, you're wrong. This is happening here in the US. Unfortunately many are saying these girls "deserve" this for being so stupid for being lurred into this. It's a sad way of thinking here in America and around the world how we make our girls and women feel low and worthless, turning a blind eye to the real problem. 100,000 people in the US are currently victims in sex trafficking- these are American born and raise boys, girls, and women. Thank you Demi Moore and others who bring awareness to the horrors of global slavery and sex trafficking. You need to know the facts and no degree is necessary. Anyone can learn and tell others about this problem, then learn from each other and DO something about it. No haters!!

    It is a shame, India has a major problem of FEMALE INFANTICIDE.

    About 1 – 1.5 million new born girls are killed by their family at birth just because they are female.

    The roots of it are in the Hindu religion and the dowry and sati system.

    With the shortage of women in the India, the men are more desparate and forcefully importing child prostitutes from neighboring Nepal. It is a shame on India.

      "... With the shortage of women in the India, the men are more desparate and forcefully importing child prostitutes."
      I don't think so. Adult men, frustrated because there are not enough women to date and marry, logically are not therefore compelled to rape children. We can heal this.

    It's too bad there aren't more people doing things to help. Not necessarily with trafficking, but how about hunger, homelessness, peace, ect. Forget about her and her fame and her documentary. She's a regular person just like everyone else. The only difference is she has a lot of money and more people know of her. Although useful, it still doesn't change the fact that anyone can do what she's doing. With technology the way it is, all you have to do is tweet or post something on your facebook about it and boom now your friends are aware. Who I'm really amazed at is Anuradha Koirala. She lives in this area and helps these people out every day with no selfishness and wanting anything in return. If there were more people who were like these two ladies, we'd live in a way better world. I have nothing negative to say because clearly they have more courage than any of us just merely expressing our opinions.

    No doubt, the problem is very serious. One may continue to blame a country's socioeconomic situation, religion or other issues for it, but the reality is that the problem persists, and to make it worse, it is still growing.

    Maiti Nepal has done a phenomenal job in rescuing young women from the grasp of forced prostitution that affects not just them, but their entire family and their future generations as well. Hats off to that!

    In regards to Demi Moore's involvement in the issue, no matter what her real intentions might have been (if any), one thing we need to understand is that her participation has made this fight against sex slavery a global phenomenon. Global awareness is in itself a major step towards achieving the abolition of the crime.

    On a side note, Madonna and Jolie may have adopted kids for publicity. But look on the bright side! Those adopted kids now have a much better future. Is that bad?

    Es muy fácil poder comentar y poner nuestras ideas en estos pequeños foros, pero el punto principal debería de ser poder nosotros es decir el ser humano, Tener la capacidad de enfrentar este tipo de atropellos y desigualdades considero que es preferible morir en el intento a nunca hacer nada, pongo como referencia un caso en mi país en el cual conozco de muchos casos de mujeres forzadas a este tipo de trabajos, pero lamentablemente por mas quejas que se ha puesto para intentar ayudarlas puede mucho mas el poder del dinero, conozco el caso de una gran comisaria que esta intentando subsanar estos problemas pero lamentablemente, nosotros los adultos estamos tan ensimismados en nuestros problemas que somos incapaces de dejar de acudir a este tipo de antros. Y son incapaces las autoridades poder encontrar a los criminales (no se les puede decir de otra manera )que han intentado varias veces de acallar su gran y esplendida labor.

    Here is an honest truth. India has the biggest slums and brothels in India (Mumbai and Delhi) where they traffic people from many places in India and Nepal. Since Indian girls are dark compared to Nepalese, they prefer Nepalese girls, younger girls actually. The border between India and Nepal has always been open for both sides. So, Indians manage to send some people by paying them into Nepal and get past the border. Since Nepalese girls are usually illiterate, innocent, they easily fall into the trap. That's how they bring girls to India illegally. Nepalese girls are higher paid in the brothels as they are fair and good looking. Girls as young as even 9 years are trafficked for this reason. Yes, I'm an Indian, and It's a shame people in my country do this. I hope this stops soon. May God help them.

    really its a shame to human civilization that in this 21st century also, there exists human trafficking, especially girl trafficking, the most for forced prostitution, n as slave where they are kept as animals n sent to the hand of people who come to play with them......😦
    n it is not only the problem of nepal or india, it is the problem of whole developing nations, n illiteracy, proverty underdevelopment, unemployment n lack of awareness is the major cause...
    as a patriot nepali, its something bitter, disappointing and shocking to say that, every year more than 10,000 nepali daughters are taken to india, as well other arabian countries like saudi arab, kuwait n many other for this purpose. a joint effort from governmental, NGOs, INGOs n the local people themself is required to stop it.....
    lets join our hands together n say NO to girl trafficking
    thank u CNN,thank u ANURADHA KOIRALA n thank u Demi moore .....

    this is very bad. we just know the existance because someone else have brought this subject. I know about this long time and in central america there a lots of this situation and even worse. We exhort the goverment to do something but little they can do. I hope that the same help will reach here in my country to stop this human traffic for ilegal actvities.

    I would like to report a case of suspected human trafficking. I live in Germany and saw something that made my coworker and I both highly suspect. Several women and one man of Hmong origin I think are living in a small apartment. What made us suspect were the two Russian gangster types sitting at the table talking on their cell phones. Although I don't speak Russian, the body language was clear. The women spoke no German and wore only bathrobes in the middle of the day.

    Celebrities, like Oprah, Jolie & Pitt, Paul Newman, can be very effective role model to arouse publicity for their victims and people that need helps. Plus the fact that they have deep pockets. So Demi is doing her part to contribute. A noble effort.

    I cant understand d relationship btwn a person caring and a college degree. Does a college degree make someone more human or less human. We r living in a world where d birth of d female child is not celebrated. Allah says he will ask d people killing d female child what Is her crime?this is absolutely injustice' why would any sane person speak against Demi 4 d role she is playing

    Okay. I am going to need for you to learn how to spell before you try and criticize someone. The word is "intend" and not "intent".

    Who are you to criticize anyone. Nobody knows you, we KNOW Demi. God is going to bless her.

    Thank you for exposing and creating an awareness that has been hauting the Nepalese women for years. Awareness is the only solution. Spread the word! The trafficked women's experience should be and must be shared with the world in order to end this horrific crime.

    What Demi is doing is amazing! If nothing she is raising awareness! I just particpated in an intercessory prayer night "a voice for the voiceless" against human trafficking. Cambodia is also infested with this problem. We all need to do something-even if it is to pray!!!

    What ever Anuradha Didi did for for the human trafficking is very fabulous job and we need to support her and give her tons of greetings for her achievement. To be an example in good work is not that easy so, please people give her big hand.

    One sure fire way to stop trafficking via the usual route (fraudulent visas) is to require a DNA test for every child claimed by those seeking to enter the US as refugees, asylees or immediate relatives. This would ensure that those claimed are actually related.

    Those claiming children not their own could then be permanently denied entry (or if in the US deported) as alien smugglers.

    The world needs more people like Anuradha Koirala who's been tirelessly fighting against human trafficking and sex slavery for over 15 years now. God Bless and thanks to Demi Moore who's rising beyond her stardom to help these less fortunate and raising awareness. Keep doing the noble work. Real men DON'T buy girls.

    This reply is for all of YOU supposed people, who question Demi Moore's qualifications for being an obvious humanitarian. First of all, the last time I looked there were NO qualifications required for caring for people and trying to positively impact their lives, especially in a crisis situations. There is no degree required to be empathetic and have sympathy for people, who are clearly being exploited and abused. We, as human beings are obligated to intervene on the behalf of people, who have no voice and cannot help themselves in horrific and inhumane conditions Just try looking at YOUR perfect little world and imagine a relative of YOURS was being abused. How would YOU feel or moreover would you feel anything? It is a sad state of affairs when another supposed human being questions someone's ability to care and improve another person's life. Who are YOU people? And I use the term "people" loosely. I pray that YOU change YOUR ways of thinking and can only hope that YOU learn to love something that is greater than YOUSELVES!

    THANKS TO ALL PEOPLE WHO ARE MAKING A POSITIVE DIFFERENCE IN ALL PEOPLE'S LIVES! THANK GOD FOR DEMI, AND ESPECIALLY ANURADHA! KEEP UP THE FATASTIC WORK THAT YOU ARE DOING!

    Very Touching documentary, thanks to Demi Moore for raising the voice of Ms Anuradha Koirala and CNN for broadcasting it. Salute to Ms Anuradha Koirala for her endless afford trying to create a better place in this World.

    Definetly, you do not need a degree to be a responsible human being and support the social cause. You just need a good intension and positive attitude.

    Yes it's funny how dilemmas such as this one begin looking unbelievably unimportant when compared to the world news. The next chapter of the cold war, the actual genuine war that erupts, Russia-China fuel offer axis... And here we're with your socialmedia dilemmas, – can we notice the world has altered? I'm not expressing what you come up with is unimportant, Iam saying a certain level of detachment is balanced. Thanks, Sarah @ http://phyto-renew350e.com/
