With phone and money for a one-way airline ticket from Tampa to another country.
As Robin drove to the airport, anti-trafficking staff members received a telephone call from a victim advocate who explained Robin’s situation. With the help of several agencies, Robin was detained at the airport and prohibited from boarding the plane.
Robin began the healing process, shared more about the incident and awareness. Robin recognized that she was in the process of being trafficked, but in her heart, she didn’t want to believe it because the older man (the trafficker) said, “I love you.”
Because of training, awareness and community shelters, Robin was rescued from the heinous crime of trafficking.
Incredible stories of intervention like this are only possible because of the gifts of monthly supporters, generous donors and compassionate volunteers to fight against the horrific sex trafficking industry.
