Every Day in Cambodia: The women who sold their daughters to sex slavery

A neighborhood in Cambodia is a global hotspot for the child sex trade. The people selling the children? Too often, their parents. CNN Freedom Project and Mira Sorvino, award-winning actress and human rights activist, investigate in a major new documentary, "Every Day in Cambodia", which airs for the first time on CNN International on Saturday at 10 a.m. CET.

Here is the story of three mothers, their children and the people trying to stop modern day slavery.

    This is mostly BS stirred up by desperate NGO's. Gotta keep those funds coming in. Svay Pak closed ten years ago.

      Hmm... I was just there three days ago and Svay Pak is not "closed" in the slightest.

    The woman in pink shirt is 10000% not Cambodian, she spoke Vietnam fluent , she is Vietnam that just live in Cambodia. CNN u have to identify the nationaly of the person you interview first, before you said this is Cambodian,

      Narin, please note i watched CNN last nite, they already state that unidentified Vietnamese living in Cambodia. Sometimes it hard to make it clear since Vietnamess also vote.
      Please think before you blame.

      Follow the whole thing, don't make assumption on one clip.

  3. NGO IS NEXT DOOR TALIBAN

    What do you know about Viet Nam ?

    That country was built by Opium Manchuria government from China. Nam is a part of Cambodia that they assimilated to Viet.

    Vietnamese language is created by French !

    Do you understand why NGO office is next door to Taliban house in Cambodia ?

    Education and literacy is the key to stop this. Local NGO's and Governments must work together to impart education to children, parents and the community in general so that the children can become the ambassadors of tomorrow, who can save the nation and take it forward.

    Mira, your efforts are clearly well intended but a bit naïve. This sort of thing has been going on for hundreds of years.You cannot have a knowledge of it in one week, though I applaud your listening to Don. Both his flip-flops are walking in reality and you should support him as much as you can. It's easy to put the problem on "pedophiles" but there are two sides to every problem – blistering poverty inflamed by ignorance is the other side, just as ugly. In my thinking it's not simply an economic problem but a mindset problem. Situation ethics, maybe. Maybe no ethics at all.

    I know the "actress" meant well. I think she is extremely naive and before she starts self disclosing her own issues, it would be better for her to learn how to educate others less her drama. This is not new. Don was very helpful, yet Mira needs to understand and wake up to see what is going on in the world. Her raving in English to people from another culture clearly avoiding the scene did nothing. Further, it seems she knows nothing about the history in Cambodia. Get out there Mira and learn, get your hands in it...help these people...get a grip and help a credible NGO teach the natives.

    "The problem remains: how do you teach someone not to sell their child?"

    How can anyone be so obtuse? These women are in loan shark traps, if they don't pay up, they will be killed and the children sold. There is no acceptable solution for them. I am not defending what they have done, it is wrong, but that does not mean they actually had any realistic alternative.

    What is needed is to find a way how to get such people out the fangs of the loan sharks, not lecture them that they should not sell their children, they already know this all too well.

    Mira is not naïve. My family served in Cambodia with Agape for 6 weeks. I promise you everything you saw is real. It is horrible. It is difficult to open your eyes to, but once you do, you realize you have to do something to help. Mira is helping by giving these heroic Cambodian girls a voice. We need more people like her.

      CNN should remove the trailer to the series from CNN. If I hear the incredibly ill suited Sorvino saying "It's not okay to sell your children, it's not ok ...!", one more time I may wretch. Surely there are more credible "celebrities" to pass along the important message of the series.

    The next occasion I read a weblog, I’m hoping that it doesnt disappoint me around brussels. After all, It was my choice to read, but I just thought youd have some thing fascinating to express. All I hear is really a number of whining about something that you could fix when you werent too busy searching for attention.
