Mira Sorvino: The mothers were desperate

Oscar-winning actress and anti-slavery activist Mira Sorvino joined a CNN team to investigate the child sex trade in Cambodia. In this video she tells CNN's Andrew Stevens about the assignment - and the horrific memories which she says she will never forget.

Every Day in Cambodia airs for the first time on CNN International on Saturday 10 a.m. CET.

    Jetwoman: Not all. Not all.

    Ms. Sorvino: Thank you for your emotional honesty.

    CNN: Thank you for Project Freedom. It has come into my life at exactly the right time and put me in exactly the right direction. I am moving to host a local screening of "Girl Rising" in my city and actively pursuing other ways to assist in this war. We don't have to look to the past and WW2 to find a "Good War" - there is one right in front of us, and we should mobilize in exactly the same way to defeat it. It will, admittedly, be much harder to win this than it was to defeat Hitler and the Axis, but that by no means should dissuade us from the attempt. "Never, never, never give up." -Churchill

      Robert - if you would like to travel to Cambodia or know of others (esp younger folks), our service learning trip is open to people throughout our "community" - you could join us or others who you have met. I can be reached at lori.halverson@rctc.edu - we work with several groups in Cambodia (and the US) that take on these hard issues.

    I can see the intellectual and compassionate person that Mira Sorvino is as well as with others who use their fame and celebrity to further the causes of humanity. I first really saw it in the life of Audrey Hepburn, and Ms Sorvino keeps this torch alive. I commend her for shining light on this horrifying situation. How can I be further involved>?

    I lead a group of college students (and community members) to Cambodia each year during winter break for a service learning trip. We all have such great intentions to "help" Cambodians. In the end, we learn so much from our Cambodian friends - about life, about hardship, and about ourselves. We also share our lives with our Cambodian friends, help, fund raise and share the stories we are so honored to hear when we return. If you would like to travel to Cambodia - contact us - http://www.cambodiarctc.project.mnscu.edu - we have won awards for our service internationally, nationally and locally. However, we'd be nowhere without our Cambodian friends who teach us so much. ~Lori
