Cambodia sex slave
Keep up with this story and more Mam has raised millions with a hectic schedule of meetings all over the globe with the good, the great and the super-rich—from the U. One day she will be speaking at the White House, and the next day she’ll be enthralling schoolchildren in a remote corner of Cambodia.
Mam claims to have rescued thousands of girls and women from sex trafficking, a dangerous and formidable feat.
Equally hard to believe is the fact that Pross’s family, neighbors and medical records all tell a different story. Pok Thorn says he performed surgery on Pross when she was 13, after her parents brought her to a hospital with a nonmalignant tumor covering her right eye.
She and Legros got married and moved to France in the early 1990s. Mam and Legros were an intrepid and attractive couple fighting for the most worthy of causes, and the media soon began to take an interest.This is a story about a story—but not quite the amazing one Mam has been telling at cocktail parties in Manhattan and Beverly Hills, or on magazine’s Most Powerful Women summit and told the hushed audience what had motivated her to become a crusader against sexual slavery.“I have been sold in the brothel by the man who come and tell me that he’s my grandfather,” she said. The brothel owner bring us all together, we all sit on the ground, and he tell us we have to do what he ask us to do.Legros says he was amazed at how easily Mam took to life in Europe. At first they were hard-pressed for cash, but a France 2 documentary broadcast in 1998 gave AFESIP major exposure and helped get Mam chosen as one of seven celebrated women honored with the prestigious Prince of Asturias Award for International Cooperation.Among the other winners were Emma Bonino, a former European commissioner for humanitarian aid, and Olayinka Koso-Thomas, a Nigerian-born doctor who had campaigned for decades against the genital mutilation of women. He knew that Mam needed more media exposure if their grand ambitions were to be achieved.
