This is a blog post from one of End Crowd’s guest writers, Laurel, who is volunteering her time in Bangkok to fight human trafficking…
A couple weekends ago, my teammates and I had the chance to visit a beautiful little village near Krasang, about 250 miles east of Bangkok. Between 80% and 90% of sex workers in Bangkok are from rural villages. We hoped that by experiencing village life first hand, we would be able to better understand the factors that force these men and women into prostitution.
We took a night train from Bangkok (I just love night trains) and the bustling city faded into quiet countryside as we rode into the night. We arrived to the village in the morning, early enough to hear the rooster crowing as the sun began to peek through the trees. It was beautiful. The air was earthy and refreshing, the slow pace of things was a welcomed change, and the sense of community was almost tangible.
Chip in and help end modern slavery once and for all.
