Beijing, China – An increasing number of Cambodian women are trafficked to China and sold as brides due to skewed sex ratios and a corresponding shortage of eligible women within China. One such woman, Leng*, who found herself trapped in a forced marriage not far from Beijing. Her husband brutally treated her by physically and sexually assaulting her regularly, and denying here any wages from her work in the family business. She was not allowed to leave the house for any reason, and could not figure out where she lived as she did not speak or read the local language (Mandarin).
Join us in helping bring justice to more girls like Leng by registering for the Race for Freedom on September 10, 2016 for freedom or sponsoring a runner/walker.
