The Alleyway Family

The Alleyway Family

With camera and Steve, my sound tech, I found the real reason we had come to Cambodia. It was here in the Ta Khmau district that we met families trying to survive the cruelty of poverty and hunger. Children are a great asset, as they can be traded for food. A small bag of rice can buy a little girl of only 5-6 years of age. The rice can feed the family for a few days, but the child is thrown into a cage, drugged and forced into sex trafficking in the sex tourist industry for a lifetime.
