Newsbreak Magazine Issue: Human Trafficking

Human trafficking is now the world's third most profitable organized crime, next only to the trafficking of drugs and guns. Within the Philippines alone, about 400,000 women are trafficked each year. Hundreds of thousands more cross the country's borders in search of better lives and end up in brothels operating in neighboring countries like Malaysia, Hong Kong, Korea, and even Europe. Newsbreak Magazine examines this modern-day slavery phenomenon in its September-December special issue. The issue is a collection of compelling and well-written stories that show the dark side of humanity as well as the power of the human spirit to overcome tremendous odds.
