Human Trafficking and Debt

Below is an article that we came across on the website www.flamecambodia.org. We encourage you to read it, and ponder what it means for us back here in NZ. How should we react to situations such as this?

“One of our young leaders, a recent high school graduate has started University. She is bright, hardworking and has now begun volunteering at one of the Flame centres teaching English to the young slum-living kids. She is pretty and full of energy with a genuine, kind heart.

SO FAR THE STORY LOOKS GOOD, RIGHT?

About 6 weeks ago, she basically decided to take up an amazing job in Japan. The package included the airfare and visa, the monthly salary was said to be US$1500, which is a truckload of money for a 19-year-old!

This kind of scheme draws in those who are struggling, the brokers deliberately target rural areas where there are known debts.”
