Human Trafficking is a crime, a dreadful crime. It’s a shame to humanity.
Ms Anuradha koirala, Founder and Chairperson of Maiti Nepal has been named the CNN Hero for the Year2010 on Sunday. Maiti Nepal has rescued more than 12,000 women and girls from sex slavery. Anuradha Koirala was chosen by the public in an online survey that went for eight weeks on CNN.com. CNN's Anderson Cooper announced the result at the conclusion of the fourth annual "CNN Heroes, An All-Star Tribute."
She started Maiti Nepal in 1993 along with eight other women and the NGO now looks after 150 previously trafficked girls and 475 children most of who were affected by the decade-long armed conflict. The Maiti Nepal premise now boasts of a school, a clinic, a women´s rehabilitation center, a child protection center, and an administrative building in the same compound. “This is another responsibility to me to work, really with all your support we have to end this heinous crime. Please join hands with me to end this crime,” an emotional Koirala told the crowd.
Anuradha Koirala made all the Nepalese to be proud with her hard working and devotion. Its true that her work and our vote made her win the prize but do you think just casting a vote means our job is done? Let’s talk about it.
