Bella is from Phnom Penh, #Cambodia. She was trafficked at the age of 12. This is her story, in her own words. “My name is Bella and I’m 21. I was born in Phnom Penh. When I was young, a woman tricked me and told me to clean her house or prepare her clothes…Then after one or two months, she sold me. When I was 12 years old, I was trafficked. They forced me to have sex with guys and I always don’t want to go… and she always hit me and blame me. I worked there about one month and I really hurt. I want to go away from the place but I cannot go. She sent me there, to the house and then have the guy come in… maybe like five a day. They pay like $20 and then he do something bad to me. I say no and I cry and I said, ‘please let me go.’ She told me that if I escape from her place, she will do something to my family. I felt like I was hopeless… I had nothing, no one care about me. No one thinks I’m special.” When Bella thought about her future, she thought she would “die some day” and that “if still I work like that, I will get a disease, and I will die with nothing.” Bella was able to find refuge in a faith-based organization, where she was able to recount her story. She is very careful about sharing her full name and still feels she is in danger. She remains in hiding.
