Woeful

The girl in innocent smile

I met her, a Khmer girl, her body is slim, tanned skin, but God gave her a tall figure, innocent smile.

She is only 14 years old but she had been bearing so much sufferings. She grew up in her grandmother's affection, her mother died of an incurable disease when she was little, but she was more woeful when she had a cruel father whom created a lot of woes in her life, he got crazy-mad when mentioning about her. When telling about her mother, her face always flushed with tears. Although she just quietly cried, I could feel that she really missed Mom, loved Mom.

Human trafficking is a profound world problem, but the Church is uniquely situated to help.

VATICAN CITY (Catholic Online) - Pope Francis met Thursday with four victims of human trafficking as well as several religious sisters and law enforcement leaders at the Vatican on the topic of human trafficking.

Pope Francis explained, "Human trafficking is an open wound on the body of contemporary society, a scourge upon the body of Christ."

Help us provide Bibles to those in need.

Pope Francis waves as he leaves the general audience in Saint Peter's square at the Vatican April 9, 2014

VATICAN CITY (Reuters) - Pope Francis said "enough" to human trafficking on Thursday, denouncing it as a crime against humanity as police leaders and religious groups from around the world pledged to work together to combat it.

Francis addressed the final session of a two-day Vatican-sponsored international conference on human trafficking attended by top law enforcement officials, politicians and representatives of religions.

My Mom Sold My Virginity

Hostesses at Cambodian beer gardens are often targeted by men looking to purchase their virginity.

Dara Keo and her mother, Rotana, were both in tears when it was time for her to leave. A motorized rickshaw had arrived to transport 12-year-old Keo from her one-room shack in Cambodia's capital, Phnom Penh, to an unknown location. Keo was crying because she was terrified. Rotana was crying because she knew she had done something unspeakable: She had sold her daughter's virginity to a rich, powerful man. The rickshaw driver took Keo to an underground medical clinic. A corrupt doctor on the payroll of brokers who arrange the sale of virgins examined her to check that her hymen was intact and gave her a blood test for HIV infection. "He confirmed I was a virgin and disease-free," says Keo, now 17. "Then I was taken to the man who bought me. I had to stay with him for one week while he raped me many times without a condom."

At the twelfth annual Vietnamese Interacting As One (VIA-1) hosted by the Vietnamese Student Associations of the Midwest (UVSA-Midwest) from March 12-14, 2104, the first OBV president, John Duy-An Nguyen, Ph.D., presented the work shop "YOU – ME & OBV MISSION": The mission of One Body Village is to combat child sex trafficking, especially in Southeast Asian countries.
