Introduction to the case

Human trafficking and sex trafficking have traumatic aftermaths on the victims. Some never recover from it, while others seek therapy to try and overcome it. Regardless of the victim’s decision, speaking out has proven helpful. This is why, in today’s video, human trafficking victims will share their trauma to help other victims.

Trafficked as a domestic servant

Natalia’s family were struggling to pay for their children’s education in their small Ghanaian village and they were happy that Natalia would get the chance to go to school in the United States when the offer came. Natalia’s atmosphere was one of continual terror after the man she lived with started abusing her physically and sexually not long after she arrived in the United States. She was compelled to cook, clean, wash clothes, take care of their three children, and work eighteen hours a day without getting paid for the next six years. She was never permitted to walk outside, use the phone, or even enroll in school as the family had promised. One day, following her terrible beating, she ran away, and the neighbor called the police. She was taken to the local hospital and got her freedom from there.

Forced into child pornography

It is disheartening when the one who should take care of you is the one hurting you. When Liz Williamson was just six years old, her mother trafficked her. Liz was sold to men and used in child pornography recordings for the next twelve years of her life. As a young adult, she managed to get away because of the help of a watchful bus driver.”

Trafficked by her parents

This is another case of being hurt by people who should protect you. When Elizabeth Frazier was barely four years old, her parents began trafficking her. They exploited her until she was 23. She shared the belief of everyone around her that her life was ordinary up to when she was 23. When she realized the truth of her circumstances she managed to flee.”

Trafficked and sold

Barbara Amaya was abducted when she was twelve years old. The couple who abducted her on the streets of Washington, DC, sold her into human trafficking.  After being sold to a man, the man took her to New York and trafficked her for many years until she got her freedom.”  

Anika Huff’s story

Anika experienced trauma regularly as a child growing up in a broken home. When she moved to Las Vegas at the age of 17, she was already a runner and had experienced hunger, couch surfing, homelessness, and not having access to education. She met her trafficker just a few days before she was scheduled to relocate to Ohio in pursuit of a better life. Her trafficker sold her to another trafficker for $300; she was being abused and on the verge of death. Upon realizing her position, the new trafficker got in touch with the original trafficker and threatened to retrieve his vehicle if he failed to return Huff. Her trafficker took her to the hospital where she underwent several surgeries and ultimately got her freedom.

Advice from the survivors

These survivors share that as people who have gone through what you went through, you should remember that you are not alone. Amidst the darkness, prioritize your wellbeing. Take time to heal because it will take a while. Speak out because when you do so, it will make you feel better, and it will be empowering.

The way forward

Victims of human trafficking and sex trafficking live with trauma for life. Most of them seek therapy to cope with it. Several of them choose to speak out and use the pain they get to help others. It is an experience that no one should be subjected to. So, we must all work together and eradicate it from our society.
