Lawyer Risks Life to Save Trafficked Victims


Van Ngoc Ta never thought when he was going to school to become a lawyer that he would someday be rescuing trafficked Vietnamese women and girls…

For the last 10 years, Van Ta, who won the anti-slavery award presented by the Thomson Reuters Foundation, has worked with an anti-trafficking charity, Blue Dragon Children’s Foundation. “When I started training as a lawyer I thought I’d be in a black suit presenting clients at court. “Now I do everything I can to conceal my identity so I can get close to girls enslaved in brothels and prepare plans to help them escape. I always prepare well because my life and the victim’s life would be in danger if anything went wrong.”
