"A human trafficker can earn 20 times what he or she paid for a girl. Provided the girl was not physically brutalized to the point of ruining her beauty, the pimp could sell her again for a greater price because he had trained her and broken her spirit, which saves future buyers the hassle. A 2003 study in the Netherlands found that, on average, a single sex slave earned her pimp at least $250,000 a year." - RandomHistory

As well as running two websites against slavery, this fine South African fellow has put a further dent in slavery by his recent awareness-raising run in the 2-oceans marathon.

Let's get behind him!
