A contact of ours from Cambodia, Somaly Mam, was recently awarded one of Glamour magazine's "Women of the Year". She started an organization called AFESIP - which combats the trafficking of women and children for sex slavery. When we were in Cambodia we met with her rep, Emmanuel, and he shared many great things about the organization.
We had an interview with her last week while she was in New York -- but it was postponed because she was ill. Anyways, just wanted to wish AFESIP the best and congratulate Somaly on her amazing humanitarian efforts.
